What's a good motherboard for me? Tags: Motherboards Product Last response: November 30, 2008 12:18 PM in Motherboards Share Beitzel15 November 30, 2008 12:09:10 AM Im thinking the EVGA 780i.... Im not 100% that I will overclock or go SLI in the future, I most likely will but lets assume Im going to do this... Here's my list of parts. NZXT Tempest Video Card: XFX GTX 260 Core 216 Black Edition PSU: Antec 850watt CPU: Intel E8500 RAM: G.Skill PI Black 4gig (2x2gig) OS: Window's Vista 64bit Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar 640gig 7200rpm ROM Drive: SAMSUNG 22X DVD±R DVD Burner with LightScribe Black SATA Now, just saying I do go SLI and OC, what will be the best motherboard for me for around or under $200 More about : good motherboard Peaks November 30, 2008 9:34:01 AM If you want to go SLI then you are going to have to go with a Nvidia chipset. The 790i's are a little out of your price range so I would go for something like the EVGA you suggested or: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... But the Nvidia MoBo's don't oc well, they suffer from high NB temperatures,so you would probably have to get a north bridge cooler if you wanted to do an heavy duty over clocking. Alternately you could just not go SLI at all (which is what I would do) and get something like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Beitzel15 November 30, 2008 12:18:10 PM Will the XFX GTX 260 Core 216 Black Edition be good enough to run modern games on high for a while so that going SLI wont have to be an option? I was thinking about going with ASUS... Could you reccomend a good asus board for me that will meet my needs, subtracting the SLI feature please. Thanks Can't find your answer ? Ask !
