  1. What processor are you planning to use? Video card? I'm sure you can get a more affordable P45 motherboard that suits your needs but won't break your bank.

    EDIT: Also, if all you need is a P43, there you have it. Are you looking for a mobo with some upgrade room?

    Im looking to buy a new d Intel Core 2 Duo E7400 and i got the 4870 512mb GPU.
    I cant decide wat to get. Im looking to upgrade my comp dat is y i bought the new GPU and all i need now is the mobo. so if u can help.

    Cheerz
  3. I have the ASUS P5Q SE\R with a E7200 running at 1600fsb 3.8ghz vcore 1.29 31c idle and 53c full load. I have the ANTEC 1200 and the Vendetta 2 Cpu cooler. You can get the mobo for 130$ and the CPU for 130$ both in canadian $. The CPU cooler around 40$ I believe. Then in 2 years time you can swap in the most powerful quad core 775 socket you can find and get another 2 years out of your rig. For the memory I bought ballistix tracer ddr2 800mhz 2x2gb for around 70$ canadian. You can tighten the timings to 4 12 12 12 by increasing the voltage to 2.0 v OR you can increase the speed to 1066mhz by increasing the voltage to 2.0v. I haven't tried higher but it seems there is still a bit of room. Later on in a few years you can add 2 more sticks to get 8gb. Don't waste your money.
  4. Sounds about right... you can go with moonblood's example and forget about the P43.

    Well you should have got this...

    E8400 + P43 + 4870 1GB
    But as you have the graphics card, Get E7400 + P45 (with 2 pcie slots)...

    Reason - could allow future crossfire of the 4870
