Mb for 955 or 945

I want to do a new system with either a amd 945 or 955 cpu and a 5770 card. It does not seem that sata 6.0 is important anytime seen and I don't think i will ever use two video cards and will not over clock. I want a full size board but would like to stay under $100. also what chipset from amd ? thank in advance for all your help

  1. I answered this in your thread in the Motherboards forum, but here's a full ATX board. If you're not doing crossfire then it will be fine. If you are willing to get a micro-ATX board, then the other one I linked has some more features.
  2. ^ Here is a very good option - And the 770 chipset is pretty good as you wont need the onboard video as well as these support even 140W TDP CPUs...
    GIGABYTE GA-770TA-UD3 AM3 AMD 770 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0
    ($79.99 after $10.00 Mail-In Rebate Card )
    $2.99 Shipping*

    I know you said SATA 6GB/s not important, but for that price when you get these why not ??

    Other options...
  3. ^+1, those are better deals than the 785 I linked.
