Hey, I need a motherboard for the following setup, any advice would be appreciated:
SAPPHIRE Vapor-X 100283VX-2L Radeon HD 5770
AMD Phenom II X2 555 Black Edition Callisto 3.2GHz Socket AM3 80W Dual-Core Desktop Processor
OCZ Fatal1ty OCZ550FTY 550W ATX12V v2.2 / EPS12V SLI Ready 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
LIAN LI Lancool PC-K58W Black 0.8 mm SECC, Plastic + Mesh ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
I tried posting this in the new build section but I thought it might belong more here, so I'm posting here as well.
I need a motherboard that would go along with this setup and it should also allow me to unlock the two remaining cores of the 555 if they are functional. I need a good board under $100, the cheaper the better as long as it is a trusted brand and is of solid quality. Any recommendations on the build would be good as well.
Newegg has an msi 770-g45 for $39.99 after rebate with promo code from their email promos. You have to be registered for the codes to work. I use msi and biostar for my builds, and have had no issues. This board uses an older chipset, but still works with the new 6 core processors with a bios update, and has a full function bios with the auto mode for unlocking cores.
