Hello,

I'm trying to build a computer with a Phenom II x4 955 processor, and I want to use a Nvidia 1Gb Video Card.

Now the Question is.... what motherboard would be the best to use that kind of processor and an nvidia video card?

I was reading and most people says that MSI builds the best motherboards, but checking them out i found that they support more ATI than Nvidia because of Crossfire, they have some Motherboards built by Nvidea yes but.. they already have Video integrated.. what would be the best thing to do?

why do you want a Nvidia card so badly? ATI makes really nice cards too :)

I'm using an MSI NF750-G55 board with Phenom II 965, 4GB ddr3 1333 corsair, EVGA 9800GT 1GB...so far so good. I'm happy with the system.

I've used Nvidia and ATI and think Nvidia is better, just imo I might have used crappy ATI's

Is the processor Black edition?
Is Overclocking worth spending a little more?
Would you use the EVGA Geforce GTS 250 1tb instead of the 9800GT?

Lots of questions I know >.< I'm just trying to figure out what would be the best decent / non-expensive / gaming computer for Starcraft 2 >.> thinking on 4 or 8GB DDR3 but it all depends on how much i spend on the rest of the components :p

4GB DDR3 RAM would be plenty.
The Phenom II X4 965 is a Black Edition Processor and Overclocking is what Black Edition processors are meant for and Overclocking will squeeze out a little to a lot of performance out of your machine.

For the GTS 250 or 9800GT >>Click Here<< The GTS 250 slightly out performs the 9800 GT.

ATI has some cheap cards out there that have Eyefinity and DX11 support, but if you want to go with a little lower performance and lack of future proofing your computer, that's your choice :)

Adds usuall comment adout 250's

I own 2 dont buy one they run to hot, i have 2 120mm fans no more than 2 inchs from the g/cards in an Antec 1200 case and they still reach 85+ degrees on load and around 60 @ idel (with all 8 fans at max rpm)

I regret buying the 250's without doing my resarch so will you........

Yup, it is the black edition cpu.
I have not OC'd but all the comments on newegg on OC'ing this board are positive. Can't go wrong for $100
