Advice on AMD Motherboard/Memory (gaming rig) **Going to purchase tody Tags: Motherboards Product Last response: February 10, 2011 8:36 PM in Motherboards Share aworthington February 10, 2011 8:32:21 PM Hey Guys, I currently have a Gigabyte AM2+ board (it's a bit older). Started getting blue screens, figured it was my drive -so I snagged an SSD, reformatted... Same blue screens. I'm guessing it's the mobo or RAM so I'm just going to use it as an excuse to replace both. Looking for suggestions on what to go with. Here is what I currently have: Gigabyte GA-MA790X-UD4P AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition 8GB 800MHz DDR2 Kingston SSDNOW SV100S2128G 1TB SATA and 250GB SATA HD5870 Corsair 750w PSU I'm thinking AM3 with SATA and USB 3.0 and 8GB of DDR3 1600 memory. Any suggestions on models/brands and/or alternative ideas? PS. I'm comfortable spending $350-400 total to upgrade both.
