Please help with Motherboard Recommendation Tags: Motherboards Last response: May 7, 2010 3:16 PM in Motherboards Share hova May 7, 2010 2:23:08 AM Been having trouble for 2 weeks to get ATI CCC and motherboard to detect my 2nd gpu (4770) and I can no longer activate crossfire so I'm completely fed up with it. So are there any recommendations for a Crossfire and SLI ready motherboard and cpu (AMD or Intel) combo for gaming? Current Build: OS: Windows 7 Home CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 940 Black Edition Deneb 3.0GHz Socket AM2+ 125W Quad-Core Processor Model GPU: SAPPHIRE 100277L Radeon HD 4770 512MB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card(x2) in Crossfire Motherboard: DFI LP DK 790FX-M2RS AM2+/AM2 AMD 790FX ATX AMD Motherboard - Need to Replace Power Supply: CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power RAM: 4 GB DDR2-800Mhz More about : motherboard recommendation | E-mail me updates | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Lmeow Motherboard Authority May 7, 2010 6:24:36 AM I suggest the Intel Core i5 750 2.66GHz and ASUS P7P55D-E Pro, and a new kit of DDR3 RAM. I personally don't know any AM2+ motherboards which support CFX, I know the Crosshair II Formula supports SLI. | Report abuse hova May 7, 2010 11:33:54 AM Lmeow said:I suggest the Intel Core i5 750 2.66GHz and ASUS P7P55D-E Pro, and a new kit of DDR3 RAM.

Will the PCIe dual at x8 / x8 mode hinder my radeon 4770s or is that a good speed for these cards? | Report abuse pinkeyes May 7, 2010 3:16:02 PM Wait, you're going to throw away 400 dollars in cpu/mobo because you can't figure out how to get your 4770s to crossfire? hova said:Thanks.

PCI-E 2.0 @ 8x will only start bottlenecking very high end cards like the 5970 and maybe the GTX 480 from the current generation of cards, and possibly the 4870x2 and GTX 295 from last generation. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Motherboards>Please help with Motherboard Recommendation> Related ressources: ForumMotherboard recommendation..Please help .
