  1. kk thanks.

    i have another problem which is whether to go for a 790 chipset mobo or a 780g 1 pcie slot is enough for me but does the 790 have any noticable improvements over the 780g??

    and if i need to oc my proccy i just need to up the multiplier so should i spend more in getting a 790 based mobo???
  2. Performance is very similar, go for the best deal.
  3. kk thanks can u suggest me a good gigabyte atx mobo based on the 780g chipset within $100?

    should i go for........

    THen go for ATi 48xx cards....
    Coz. It would be perfect match:
    a) Phenom II 940 - Dragon Platform.
    b) 790x based mobo - Dragon Platform.
    c) 48xx GPU - Dragon Platform.
  8. gts 250 is better then ati 4850..first thing is nvidia have physics x. ati does not, i agree gts 250 is g92b chip which first on 8800gt, but now they are very well tuned, i sugest u...to se results of the cards..u see gts 250 is slightly better....i not nvidia or ati fan boy
  9. NB785 and SB710 mobo with DDR3 support available in India at Rs.6000
