Intel Motherboard for Q6600, needs pci-e 2.0, CF, and good OCing Tags: Motherboards Intel Product Last response: December 10, 2007 3:19 AM in Motherboards Share Xpyrofuryx December 9, 2007 11:54:00 PM I am looking for a motherboard to pair with: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 @2.66Ghz (I plan to OC) 2GB (2x1GB) DDR2 800mhz Crucial Ballistix 2x Crossfire VisionTek ATI Radeon HD3870s 512mb I want to take advantage of the HD3870s so first off I need Crossfire support, and I want pci-e 2.0 slots. The board needs to be able to overclock fairly well, and preferably under $170. I am choosing between this and a AMD spider system. (Phenom 9550, MSI Plat 790FX). Thanks guys!

If you were willing to do without the PCI-e2.0 and the 16x,16x for crossfire youd go with P35 and get the board for sub $150 ryanthesav December 10, 2007 2:43:16 AM hahahaha rip those leaves off the money treeee Can't find your answer ?
