I'm putting together a new rig this summer ..I originally planned on picking up an Athlon II X4 645 or Phenom II X4 945 ..but then I heard about the sandy bridge i5s ..and ppl say I'm an idiot even thinking about getting an AMD CPU for gaming now ..so I'm thinking about buying an i5 ..unfortunately I have a kinda tight budget ..around 1000 or 1100 $$ ..not more ..so I wanna spend as low as is possible on my mobo ..
I want it to be CrossFire ready (i don't care about SLI) ..16gb DDR3 1600 MHz capable ..4-6+ USB 2 slots ..USB3 ..2+ SATA slots ..with reasonable overclocking headroom ..
my budget is 100-150$ ..
thanks in advance ..
