  1. Good build, but I would get a better MOBO.

    Here you go:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157188&cm_re=890gx-_-13-157-188-_-Product

    That mobo that you had blows pretty hard.
  2. Whats the difference in those two mobos other then 50$.
  3. friendly bump. :P

    The second mobo has a faster southvridge, is higher quality, and has 2 PCIe so you can Xfire later.
  5. I disagree with Bob, he also sent you a link to newegg.com, not .ca. It would cost you about an extra $15 if you went with the AM3 870, not crossfire compatible, but a good board, nothing wrong with the 770 though.

  6. i would stay away from both of those:

    on the MSi: "2 (x16/x4)"

    FAIL!

    On the second one, no USB 3.0 or SATA 6.0gps, slow southbridge.
  7. Whats bad about the MSi 2 (x16/14)? Sorry don't know much about this stuff.
  8. ^

    That means that for all intents and purposes you cant Xfire with it.

    Running 2 cards at 16x 4x is a huge waste.

    4x means it only has 25% of the bandwith that it needs to selimnnate a bottleneck.

    SO no Xfire for you on that board.

  9. To answer the main question, is everything in my list compatible, changed mobo. Won't be xfire ing..
  10. You sure you wont want to add a second card later down the line?
  11. Down the road the computer will probably be outdated, the way computers update today. hah. Its only for WoW anyways.
  12. I would still pay the 20$ more for the nicer board.

    Just in case they make a new WOW grpahical setting or soemthing.
