Gained performance but could have better 12V power supply plugs position.

Summary: I bought this MSI 870AG54 motherboard so as to get also a AMD Phenom II x4 3Ghz CPU. My old motherboard could only fit a AMD Athlon 64 x2 4800+ 2.4Ghz skt 939. The graphics card I already had was a Palit (Nvidia chipset) GTS 450. I could not get the full potential of it from the old motherboard and CPU.
