Could someone point me in the right direction on which Mobo of GIGABYTE (AMD) would be pretty good for gaming and Video editing ? Also if there are any other Motherboards (AMD) that would also be ok. I would prefer ddr2 or a combo ddr2/ddr3 ?
I would also like to run with the :
the difference is in the northbridge chipset.. the 790x vs 790fx
the 790x does crossfire at x8 pci-e 2.0 for two cards while the 790fx does it at x16 pci-e 2.0 speeds.. if you're running crossfire and have two high end video cards then you should get the fx so that it isn't bottlenecked..
you can find your own benchmarks for bottlenecking, but that's basically the difference between the two.. (or so i think)
And,,for what it is worth the UD5P is one of the very few mobo's on the market today that still has a floppy connector where is has traditionally been,I know that a lot of you youngsters do not know what to do with a floppy ,, or are happy with out one but us old fartz [65+] sometimes find them quite useful ,,plus it supports a very wide range of AMD's cpu's...Different strokes etc....
