Good MoBo for i7-950 build (preferably with sick black friday deal on it)
I'm getting an i7-950 from microcenter on Friday and was looking for a good mobo to use with it. I'll be using an NVIDIA GTX 470 and whatever RAM is known to work well with the board in question.
You can get this one
For RAM many choices, here's two
MoBo Budget ?
Pick one of these:
RAM Budget ?
CAS 6 - Most builds this year I have done with the Mushkin Enhanced Redlines or "Radioactives" depending on what was cheaper on day of order. $0mm height keeps them from interfering w/ CPU coolers
CAS 7 - Here I been doing the Corsair's or Mushkin Blacklines, again both of which have low height
Built 3 machines this month w/ this MoBo , redlines, factory OC's 470's .... two w/ Antec DF-85 and one w/ HAF-932.
I actually ended up buying all on Black Friday:
Asus P6X58D Premium (Newegg Ultra Secret Sale)
MSI GTX 470 (Newegg Ultra Secret Sale)
i7-950 (Microcenter Doorbuster)
64GB Microcenter SSD (Microcenter doorbuster)
Now I just need to figure out what RAM is best for that MoBo without breaking my budget (which is already broken to the tune of about $200 sigh). I'm not really familiar with triple channel RAM: do I need to buy RAM in triples like you used to have to try and keep it in pairs?
