First build motherboard advice and review Tags: Build Motherboards Systems Last response: April 23, 2008 1:11 PM in Systems Share Anonymous a b V Motherboard April 22, 2008 7:37:07 PM Hi, i'm having problems choosing a motherboard for my first build (I'm probably going about this backwards by choosing mobo last but oh well). Current component selection: CPU: E8400 Core 2 Duo 3.0Ghz GPU: XFX 8800GTX XXX PSU: Coolermaster M700 Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda 500GB, 7200rpm, 32MB Cache Disk Drive: Sony DRU-190S (black) Memory: Not chosen depends on motherboard (ddr2 or ddr3?) Case Fan: 1xSilverstone Suscool81 Ultra Quiet 80mm Case: EZ Cool Alpine 7103 (black) So yea comments on components chosen and advice on motherboard to choose greatly appreciated!

Anonymous a b V Motherboard April 23, 2008 12:44:32 AM Budget: Components chosen so far is about £650 so i'm guessing reasonable mobo will be about £80 maybe? so around £730 Firewire: Not a major factor, would be preferable i guess but won't be too dissapointed if not included. Something i forgot to mention, i want the motherboard to be SLI capable so i can upgrade performance later cheaply Can't find your answer ? Ask !
