Hello, let me start off saying sorry if this is in the wrong section. I'm looking for a replacement motherboard and cpu
APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: 28 may, this Friday BUDGET RANGE: Around 200 After Rebates
SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming, internet surfing, office work
PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Everything but the motherboard and cpu. current power supply is an unknown 650w, can find out more but this is not my computer, so will have to wait to get it in front of me if more details are needed.
PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg.com
PARTS PREFERENCES: none
OVERCLOCKING: Maybe, but most likely no SLI OR CROSSFIRE: yes, unless raises cost too much
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: This is a replacement, i already have ddr 2 memory and don't want to have to move to ddr3, mainly because of budget. sli/crossfire would be nice but not used for quite sometime so not necessary.
This is my first post here but i know you guys are very helpful, so let me just say thank you in advance.
oh Thank You for reminding me, i knew that but i thought that was a thing of the past. The Card he currently has is a 9800 nvedia (not certain exactly what company made it, i can check when i get home). I guess I am back to scraping the sli/xfire idea, i guess i will stick with the original recommendation and get this board/cpu
AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor Model HDZ955FBGMBOX + GIGABYTE GA-MA785GM-US2H AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 785G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
my question, the manufacture page says it only supports that cpu with the f5 bios. What are the chances of buying it from newegg.com and it having that bios revision. I have no way to update it if it does not?
