Is This Motherboard Compatible With This Cpu?

I am building myself a gaming PC and I am buying the Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H LGA 1155 Motherboard. And I want to know if the AMD HDZ965FBGMBOX Phenom II X4 965 is compatible with that motherboard! If anyone has any answers that could help me please do post them I would really appreciate it. Here are the links to both the motherboard: http://www.amazon.co.uk/GA-Z77X-UD3H-Graphics-CrossFireX-LucidLogix-DualBIOS/dp/B007R21JJK/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1359527640&sr=8-1-fkmr0 And CPU: http://www.amazon.co.uk/AMD-HDZ965FBGMBOX-Phenom-II-965/dp/B002SRQ214/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1359524858&sr=8-1 Thanks guys 😀

    LGA 1155 usually applies to intel processors, whether AMD use the same socket I don’t know, but the motherboard must support AMD processors not intel, they will not support both. You read the spcifications on the website. I prefer intel processors but have used both.

    No, AMD CPU’s will not work with that motherboard, if your going to get that CPU, then i recommend this motherboard for $45 from newegg.com
    BIOSTAR A780L3B AM3 AMD 760G Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
    Although i would recommend spending $5 more on this CPU instead for gaming.
    AMD FX-6100 Zambezi 3.3GHz Socket AM3+ 95W Six-Core Desktop Processor FD6100WMGUSBX
    along with this motherboard for $60 on newegg.com
    BIOSTAR A880GZ AM3+ AMD 880G HDMI SATA 6Gb/s Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

    LGA sockets are usually made for Intel chips, not AMDs like your Phenom II.
