Which MOBO to pick??!?! Tags: New Build Asus Formula Systems Last response: November 19, 2008 2:27 PM in Systems Share Beitzel15 November 19, 2008 1:58:26 AM I CAN NOT decide. I started out with the Nvidia 780i FTW... Then saw the ASUA Maximus II Formula, then I saw the ASUS Striker II Formula.....then saw the ASUS RAMPAGE Formula.... I want the best one of those, something that will be some-what simple for a noob to overclock with & have good over-all performance.. Other Specs, Video Card: GTX 260 Core 216...896mb CPU: E8500 3.16 GHz PSU: COOLMAX 950watt. RAM: Corsair Dominator (4gig) Thanks More about : mobo pick | E-mail me updates | Report abuse Register or log in to remove aeiouandxyz November 19, 2008 2:31:08 AM Whatever you do, don't get a nvidia chipset. You're better off with the Maximus II Formula or the Rampage. IF you're going to stick with 1 gpu, then go with the Maximus II (P45). For 2 or more gpus, go with the Rampage Formula (X48). | Report abuse swifty_morgan November 19, 2008 2:33:18 AM 1869179,2,321795 said:Whatever you do, don't get a nvidia chipset.
