i was considering on getting this CPU/MOBO combo, and i was wondering about your thoughts on this motherboard, is it worth getting it? I was planning to get a radeon HD 5770 and G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600. Do you believe this might be a good value purchase? Or should i think about it twice?
What other motherboard would you recommend if im planning to get an AMD II X3 440 and 1 XFX radeon HD 5770, my budged for the motherboard would be around 150$. Thanks
Thank you for your answer. I'll look into it, so far that ASUS has taken my attention :O
That asus looks great, any other ideas for a good mobo? Upgradeability/price /quality are my priorities
The Asus is good if you plan to crossfire, if not you can get a cheaper mobo just as good as that one only without crossfire. I have a crossfire mobo and I don't use it. Should have bought a cheaper mobo and a better video card.
Which cheaper mobo could be good to compete vs that ASUS? I might not crossfire in the long run, but i would like to get an optical motherboard that I can update in the future.
Well it depends,if i need 2 PCI-E slots then i will go with either of the 2 first motherboards.Otherwise i would go with ASUS M4A87TD/USB3,because i don't think you'll need the integrated HD 4250M if you use a discrete card
