I'm beginning to get the itch for a new computer, and I've always used AMD CPUs.

What is the difference between the current sockets -

Socket AM3
Socket AM3+
Socket FM1 and
Socket FM2



AM3+ is the newest socket for AMD FX based CPUs (Bulldozer and Piledriver).

AM3 is the older socket for Phenom, Phenom II based CPUs.

FM1/2 are for AMD APUs (Accelerated Processing Units) which combines a CPU and a GPU on the same die.
