So I have been searching for a motherboard post that is recent but nothing really answers the questions for me. . .
So I am asking the community which AM3 board would you choose within this price range. I would prefer to stick with a full ATX board just to have less issues with fitment and what not. And I have used ASUS in the past but I am open to other options if they have better stats.
The CPU and Memory going into this will be this.
AMD Phenom II X6 1055T
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
I am wanting to have the possibility of Crossfire although I will not currently be using it. Right now I have an EVGA GeForce 8800GTS SSC Which is working well just being seriously choked by the 4-5 year old Pentium D 2.8. I will probably be buying a ATI 5770 or 5800 series later as a replacement but that is future not current.
Anyways your input would GREATLY be appreciated and thanks in advance.
890GX or 890FX chipset =D
I myself am going to but the Asus Crosshair IV Formula 890FX mobo, looks suuupppeeeerrr cooolll!!!!!
(sunig same 1055T =D)
Now, the problem i have is WICH RAM to get, LOL still trying to figure out that part
if you plan to crossfire gigabytes ga-890fxa-ud5 would be your best choice, in your price point. i also own it and would recommend it. (mosox's first link)
currently $180 on newegg with free shipping
asus M4A89TD PRO/USB3 would also do you well. but its $5 more expensive without free shipping.
