Need advice on choosing a board... Thanks Tags: Motherboards Processors Overclocking Last response: November 25, 2007 1:51 PM in Overclocking Share Khar00f November 24, 2007 6:09:36 AM Hi guys i'm looking at building a new pc soon (around december probably) I've chosen so far the processor (Q6600) and the gfx (8800GT X2 SLI) Ram is most likely going to be OCZ not sure which model though...advice here would be helpfull also. I'm just not sure which board i should use, I'm a fan of abit (having a local supplier also helps) also looking to be futureproof with all the new processors coming out next year... if it's even possible with computers if your advice goes with another make, then it shall be, haven't really been keeping up lately with mobo makers so not sure how abit is doing lately, that's why your advice will be more than welcome. Please keep in mind that this is a machine that will be OC'd. Thank you in advance for all your replies, they will be much apreciated...
