Will this MoBo work with my processor?

Hello

I have ASUS M4A78LTM_LE, but it has started to give problems now. I wanted to buy a new MoBo for my AMD Phenom II x4 965BE processor and i selected MSI 970A-G46. But after reading few reviews some said that this MoBo bottlenecks processors having wattage more than 95W and my processor is of 125W. So is this really true? If not i'll go for this but if yes please suggest me a good and cheap MoBo. My budget is $100 (7000INR).

Thank you

I'm sure it will work with a BIOS Update you shouldn't go wrong. Anyways, why not gigabyte?

Thanks for the fast reply.

Errmmm i have used Gigabyte before, so i wanted to try MSI for a change. :P

Anyhow these are 2 Gigabyte boards i have selected.

1. Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3
(This one have a limitation written which i am not able to understand properly. Will this work?)

2. Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3P

If you have anyother suggestion please tell. And why do you emphasize on Gigabyte than MSI?
