So my motherboard died recently and rather than just replace it I'd like to also replace the processor and memory. I'm still relatively new to the homebuild scene and while I can usually figure out compatibility and general quality I'm always appreciative of any input anyone has for me.
That's not bad. IMO, the Phenom II is one of the best CPUs for the price. Cannot comment on the MoBo, as I've not been into AMD since Intel's Core2 Duo inception. I can vouch for the memory though, got eight GB of it in my OC'd gaming rig.
If April 26th ain't too long a wait for AM3 they will release the next gen 800 series mobos with native SATA 6GB/s The 890GX is out but if u dun need CF then perhaps the incoming, cheaper 870/880G is your cuppa tea hehe From the pricing 890GX is usurping the pricepoint of the 790GX which i guess will slowly be discontinued? So at 770s now at $60-80 thats awesome news for 870!
