Hey guys (and gals) I am in the process of figuring out what I need to upgrade my gaming PC.
APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: this week
BUDGET RANGE: $400-500 range after rebates
SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming ONLY
PARTS NOT REQUIRED: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS, PS (Antec True Power SLI 750W), full tower case, hard drives, video cards (I have two eVGA 9800GTX+ cards)
PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: (newegg.com)
PARTS PREFERENCES: I have always been an AMD fan and would like to use an AMD CPU and ASUS mobo. DDR3 RAM
SLI: Yes (I already have the cards - see above)
MONITOR RESOLUTION: (1920x1080)
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I really just need recommendations for an SLI mobo, CPU and RAM that can run 2 9800GTX+ video cards without bottlenecking the CPU.
Alright I have read a lot of reviews and I am going to go the i5 route. Very impressive. I really like ASUS, so as long as the P7P55D Pro can run 2 9800 GTX cards I am going that route, or the P7P55D WS route, which does 3 way SLI.
