I thought I had my system all picked out and ready to order for this wknd when I got the newegg.ca thanksgiving newsletter with the above Gigabyte board on sale... Now Im torn and uniformed. Hoping somone will be able to tell me which is better (opinions most welcome). Basically I've budgeted for the $220 but am up for any suggestions, be it an entirely different board.
What I like about the two: USB 3.0 / Sata 6GB / Crossfire option
System will also have:
- AMD Phenom X4 II 965 BE
- 6GB PC2000 DDR3
- 1 x GIGABYTE GV-R587UD-1GD Radeon HD 5870 (Cypress XT) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card w/ Eyefinity
I do not plan on adding a 2nd video card for at LEAST 6 Months
