More about what mother board choose
  1. CF rules out the Asus board (second slot at 4x). I would choose between the Asrock boards on price.
  2. hmm iguess so, but asus is getting good ratings.... and the other halfs where roughly 4 eggs. but the eggs isnt just my basis lol and was wondering why is ASrock 880G cheaper than ASrock 870G.
  3. BUMP seriously

    yeah i guess so.. i thought somebody in the forums might actually have an experience on it but i get only you as a respondent thanks for the time tho.
  6. I'd be doing a Sandy Bridge build unless your total budget w/ GFX is less than $1,000. This is a sub $1000 build I just did for one of my son's friends. Since ya have the GFX card, ignore that and substitute your own
