More about which board better
  1. Well I dont think investing that much money on those boards is worth it...And are you using a graphics card or using the video output from the motherboard?
    Get any of these boards instead...

    He's probably looking for a CrossFire board and WOW I had no idea Asus could still charge $190 for a P45 (discount chipset) motherboard.

    I'd go with this one:

  3. :p yes $190 for a P45 board...that is nearly the cost of a X58 mobo...
    I had suggested the ASUS with the crossfire support and the Gigabyte board if he isn't going for crossfire...
    As for the board you have suggested, it has a solid layout and very good features but it seems to be failing at a higher rate...mayb ASRock should look into it...

    That's odd, I haven't had any problems with mine...
  5. Hmm...
    Seeing 5 out of 19 people reporting their boards failing made me say that...

    But it is just a small % of people's review though...And it maybe different when taking the overall numbers...
  6. sorry about not posting my gpu. I have a Asus 4890 and will probably be going crossfire later sometime though.

    I want a good board between that price range.
  7. I kind of want a board that runs at both pci express 2.0 at x16 and not one at x16 and the other x8.

    Then you have to cross off the P45 board from your original list.
  9. I think I'll go with the GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3P board unless you have other recommendation.

    The P45 chipset has 16 PCI-Express 2.0 pathways for the graphics card, which are split in x8 mode across two slots.

    I thought you wanted two x16 slots?
  11. I was going to go with it unless someone has a better recommendation.

    EP45-UD3P is a great board, and with PCIe 2.0 doubling bandwidth 8x should be more than enough for any GPU, for a while to come. But if you really have your heart set on two full x16 slots, you need an X48 or X38 chipset.
  13. okay. Thank you
