It's a good mobo, only he has DDR2 RAM.

lol, mosox CAUGHT you.. recommending an am3 board in that second post of yours Maziar.. but mosox, ur guilty too.. ur amazon link is an am3 board too =/

metalgear11, it's a tricky bit because you have an am3 processor but ddr2 RAM.. that's where the difficulty lies..

am3 CPU's use ddr3 RAM unless you put them into am2+ sockets.. that means you need to find an am2+ motherboard with a bios update that will support am3 cpu's (since you have ddr2 RAM)..

desiring Crossfire also makes this process a little more difficult as it narrows the northbridge that we can select.. we're looking at 790fx boards (for FULL pci-e 2.0 slots) for which this is pretty scarce at your budget..

Thank you for all your help,

Yes atm i do have a am2+ it is a very bad motherboard as i got it in a bundle with my cpu.

I have been looking at this motherboard does not support Crossfire X :

Gigabyte GA-MA78LM-S2H AM3 DDR2 Motherboard
