I recently ran into a dilemma that seems mind boggling as to what i should do so i'm asking for quick opinions and which sounds the most promising i believe I will follow.
I currently built this setup but is now outside the return date,
AMD PHENOM II X4 955
ATI SAPPHIRE 4890 VAPOUR-X 1GB
PATRIOT 1600 DDR3 4GBkit
MINI P180 CASE
lovely little setup for gaming i think. and to top it off 2months into having this machine I won an I7-860.
Now I started to ponder, should i build a new system, but take forever to do so.
Should I sell my current system and build a system in days after it being sold.
Just buy a motherboard and slowly build back an AMD sys or sell everything and just make a x58 system.
PS i'm usually a budget system builder hence why i went for the AMD build in the first place..
Thank you fellow poster and i look forward to your posts
Sweet.. I'll be getting a new MoBo then thank you all for your posts.
so now for part 2, i was thinking Asus Formula GENE III 1156 RoG or the Gigabyte P55M-UD4P, the reason for these choices are because my Case is a Mini P180 and it only supports that form factor...
HMMM that is a hard one, as both are great motherboards and the features are about the same. This may be an instance where you just go with the cheaper one, though I will say I really like what gigabyte has done with their mobos now.
