Gigagbyte 970A DS3P Compatible With Ryzen 5 1600

I am hoping to not have to purchase a new motherboard, but if this processor isn't supported then what are some decent motherboards which will?

GA-970A-DS3P (rev. 1.0) | Motherboard - GIGABYTE and GA-970A-DS3P (rev. 2.x) | Motherboard - GIGABYTE are both AM3 sockets. So it looks like that motherboard will not support the Ryzen processors which are AM4 socket types.

I highly recommend https://pcpartpicker.com/ and http://www.userbenchmark.com/  for building computers with. They aren't perfect for ensuring compatibility and performance for you computer, but they are a huge help for doing the research.

Hi, your motherboard is not compatible with Ryzen. You would need a socket AM4 motherboard and DDR4 memory for Ryzen.
