hey guys
as the title says im after a Motherboard with SLI support, DDR3, and an AM3 socket (if possible) for under $120
I want to only buy what ever graphics card brand, the mobo supports as eventually i plan to add another card exact same. I really want a card the has a 256bit memory bus but ATI dont go there unless u spend $220+ and thats a bit much for me (graphics card budget is $170) and so I want to go with nividia, however im having a hard time finding a mobo that fits my specs (I live in australia and will be buying of au places btw) Any help on graphics cards for my needs would be great thanks

cheers

The only board I can think of is the MSI NF750-G55, however, why are you looking for a 256-bit memory bus? The HD 4870 has a 256-bit memory bus but the HD 5770 which as a 128-bit memory bus performs very similarly to it.

Hi newcomer and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.

Like a personal advice my suggestion is that u should go with ATI and Crossfire, the chipset nVidia don't works fine with AMD processors and the performance with SLI isn't the best.

Now if u still wanting the SLI, is better go with Intel and X58 or P55 mobos, that support both Crossfire and SLI without problems and perform much better that the SLI on AMD.

ive read a bit about the different buses and apparently its better to go with the wider bus and less memory and im having trouble finding an ATI card for under $170 that has one but yer perhpas just one of the 5770 cards that I was gunna go with would be fine. Thoughts?

If you want a ATI 5770 under $ 170 than you can go for SAPPHIRE 100283L Radeon HD 5770 (Juniper XT) 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card ($164.99) - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
