Would a Amd ryzen 7 1700 processor pair with a 760GM-P34(FX) (MS-7641) motherboard?

I currently have a 760GM-P34(FX) (MS-7641) motherboard and I am looking to upgrade my CPU to play more high end games. Just recently I've seen the releases and benchmarks of the new Ryzen 7 1700 processor. I am just wondering if i were to buy it would it pair with my motherboard? (I have a Amd rx 470 GPU)

  1. Nope, different socket
  2. Ryzen is a totally new platform. You will need a new motherboard & DDR4 RAM.
  3. No.

    That the AM3 socket

    You would need a new motherboard that supports am4 and DDR4 ram

    That's a board that comes in a prebuilt normally as well I know because I used to have it.

    It only supports up to 6 core FX-6xxx processors

    8 core FX 8XXX Isn't supported on that board
  4. If you plan on getting a new AM4 motherboard good luck. I pre ordered my new board 9 days ago and it still hasn't shipped. There's a worldwide shortage at the moment.

    Even if you do not upgrade to ryzen you should try to at least get a motherboard that will support an FX-8000 processor one I personally recommend is the ASUS 970 pro gaming. It is a great motherboard but keep in mind that it does not support any Ryzen cpu.
  6. Getting a new AM3 motherboard would be the worst possible decision that he could make here

    Why? it would be a decent performance upgrade and be within the budget. I do partially see your point though.
  8. It wouldn't be decent upgrade and it's a dead platform released in 2012 with no upgrade path.
