I'm getting ready to build a new graphic's machine and found this board. There isnt any feed back on it and am wondering if anyone has any information? I like that it has nvidia chipset. Or does anyone have a good recommendation on motherboards for amd. I'm currently looking at the black editions x4 655.
thanks for any help. kevin

Hi newcomer and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.
1- What is your budget? 2- Do u refer to the X4 955 or X4 965 right? 3- AMD processor with chipset nVidia=problems
yeah sorry, was early this morning. the x4 965.
My budget is around 900 for entire computer.
Ok so you think I should be looking at the amd chipsets. like the 790/750?
For the chipset, I need know if you want use Crossfire in the future, or just go with one GPU. In 4 days comes out the Thuban (six core) and the 890FX and 880G chipset, that are very good.
So, u can wait until the 26th of April to get a new 890FX mobo, or buy a 790FX mobo, that maybe drop their prices a little.
I am thinking of getting a solid ati single vid card....no plan's on a dual card setup. I have no problems waiting until the 26th to start building the computer.
Phenom II X4 955 (u can get the same performance of he 965) Maybe a 5850 or 5870 is a very good option. 4GB (2x2GB) 1333 is enough for now Mobo, could be a new 890FX, but like u don't want use crossfire, maybe with a 880G is enough or a 790FX.
I'm waiting too for he 890FX for upgrade my RAM , mobo and GPU (maybe two 5770 or 5850 in Crossfire mode)
great, thanks for the information.
3- AMD processor with chipset nVidia=problems
Why? With no nForce compatible with the recent Intel processors, this might be a problem...
