Help with components

Hi everyone, I have just recently come into some cash. I am trying to find an AM2/3 motherboard that will support a AMD 1090T 6 core processor. I am thinking am2 with DDR2 would be a litte cheaper then top of the line am3. I have roughly a $500 budget. I will be porting over some parts from my current build.

XFX GeForce 9800 GTX+ graphics card

PSU SEASONIC|S12-600/W SLI/Rdy Power Supply

I am having a hard time finding an nvidia chipset based board that supports AMD proc's. What I am looking for is at least 4gb DDR2/ 2gb DDR3, the motherboard with support for 1090T or 1055T or 1075T 6 core proc. that will accept my current graphics card. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

  1. I wanted to add. I'm not fishing for information that I will act on in a few months. If someone can help me with the correct parts I will immediately be ordering them. Thanks again for any help!

    This page should give you all the motherboards. You can use all the other components you have. I currently have no time to look through each of the boards to find the chipset, but I just pointed you to the resource if you haven't known this in the past. Also, it is not clear from your question what you HAVE and what you DON'T have right now.
  3. I have all of the other parts need to complete the build except the motherboard, cpu, and new RAM required for board. I have been scouring newegg and tigerdirect but the parts I keep coming up with are out of my price range or only support ATi graphics. I'm thinking a am2/ board with ddr2 mem support would be a little cheaper then an am3 board with ddr3 mem. thanks for the link
  4. The problem I'm having is I'm a little out of the hardware game, and most AMD based boards are ati chipsets. I need a board that will support and amd 6 core proc with a nvidia chipset that will support my 9800gtx+
  5. Hi bnmy1 and welcome to Tom's forum.

    If you only are using a single GPU, you can go with an AMD mobo and the 9800GTX+ without problems. Even you can hack the mobo for support SLI (You choice if you want do it)
  6. TY saint, I would like to find an sli ready motherboard. I do plan on updating my graphics in the next few months, for dx11 support. I am out of touch with current nvidia chipsets, to give you an idea my current build is socket 939.
  7. nVidia is out of the chipset business, so, the best options for SLI is Intel and not AMD.

    With $500 you can build a solid rig AM3, until you can upgrade your current GPU.
  8. am3 board with an intel chipset? Could you maybe post a couple of links and elaborate just a little more please?
  9. ^Not that.

    I mean that if you want build a SLI rig, you have to go with Intel and not with AMD.

    Give me a minute to build a $500 rig ok? The $500 are for CPU, mobo, RAM and gpu right?
  10. not a GPU that will come later. just MOBO, CPU and RAM, I have a seasonic S12 600/W psu that is sli rdy, though a few yrs old very solid psu, and the 9800gtx+. thank you for the help
  11. unless you can suggest a better GPU that would still in the range with the mobo, cpu, and ram?
  12. The next gpu upgrade must have dx 11 support lol
  13. Best answer
    Here is:

    1- CPU: Phenom II X6 1090T

    2- Mobo: Gigabyte 890FXA-UD5

    3- RAM:G.Skill Ripjaws 4GB (2x2GB) 1600

    Total: $502.48 including shipping but not rebates.
  14. thank you very much for the help
  15. Your welcome, what GPU do you have in mind?
  16. Was leaning towards a 2XX series card round the $200 mark. When I get them I plan on getting 2, so I want to keep the price round $400-$425 for both. I just came to the hard realization that my rig just turned 5 last month it has had a few upgrades but not many. Originally started out with Just an A8N SLI deluxe, an Athlon FX 55 2.6GHz. 2 gigs coarsair TwinX, PC3200 RAM, a 75Gb 10k Raptor. The board is now a A8N32 SLI Deluxe, 2 gp Patriot pc3200 ram and an athlon 64 3800X2 (socket 939) proc. So chances are this one will do the same. :-I
  17. oh and 2 XFX 6800GT's
  18. I noticed your running the Hyper12, I'm still running a Hyper6 >)
  19. Are the $400 the budget for the GPU? If i'm right I suggest to you that go with a single high-end GPU, like a GTX480, GTX580 or HD6870....
  20. sorry about link Supposed to take you to GTX 480 and I've been using XFX products for years. I'll run the 9800gtx+ until I can afford the 480
  21. ASRock 870 EXTREME3 AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

    Would this board suffice I know I'll be losing some functionality but I really do not need quad sli or crossfire support
  22. That mobo can works, but if you want overclock I suggest to you the FX chipset that comes without onboard video.
  23. I'm sorry I was really looking at that board because I don't nearly have the full $500. I depossited $475. I figured I could get that board The 3.0Ghz 6 core, 6Gb of the ripjaw ram and a new SATA burner. Since the 1075T 3.0 GHz proc isn't black edition I didn't think it would matter that for the board to support OC'ing. I'll just have to deal with it running stock. I currently have the 3800 x2 running at a stable 2.6Ghz using the Coolermaster Hyper6. :) And with the Little bit left over I'll grab a new SATA DVD Burner. I could chat about this crap all day lol. I love it
  24. I hate to admit it I need to stretch the dollar right now might even be enough for 500gb sata HD Or a coolit Eco water cooler. Not to mention I'm going from a dual core 2.5GHz OC'd proc to 2.8GHz 6core proc and 2gb of DDR pc 3200 to 4gb of DDR3 pc12800. I'm going to see a preformance boost lol
  25. Below is what I decided on, total price with shipping $468.58. It looks sound and I should see a huge movie encoding and gaming boost.

    LITE-ON 24X DVD Writer Black SATA Model iHAS-324-98

    Western Digital Caviar Blue WD10EALX 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal
    Hard Drive -Bare Drive

    ASRock 870 EXTREME3 AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

    G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)

    AMD Phenom II X6 1055T Thuban 2.8GHz Socket AM3 125W Six-Core Desktop Processor HDT55TFBGRBOX
  26. Just placed the order. Thank you for all of your help. :)
  27. Solid build, even with the 1055T you can hit the 4GHz with overclock. Enjoy it ;)
  28. Awesome saint, thank you again for the help. I can't wait for my parts to get here. I'm a 37 year old kid in a candy store. Years ago when I bought the parts for my first build I spent 3K on parts, (imagine what that would get me now) I blew $800 on a single core CPU, the FX-55, :-P I can't believe I just spent less than a third of the money and will have a system that is light years beyond what I did back then. I have to ask, I was looking at your configuration and didn't notice a GPU? I know the board you are using doesn't have onboard graphics, watcha runnin?
  29. One last question? The board says CrossfireX is supported. Will I have a problem with installing my 9800GTX? Also is SLI even an option with this board?
  30. Wow that was a solid CPU for his time ;).

    My 1st AMD CPU was a single Athlon XP 1.9GHz, and was killed by overclock :)

    I'm currently using a old GTX 260, but will be upgrade it soon (Xmas present for my self :) )

    You will not have any problem running the 9800GTX or any single nVidia GPU, but if you want SLI you need hack the mobo and is not sure that works fine.
  31. It was very fast. On the other hand it stopped me from going top of the line. Bummer on the OC kill. Realizing now how fast tech is out dated I'll go mid and squeeze the extra performance out of it. I'm thinking I can get the new proc to at least 3.5GHz or so off of air cooling. Then I want to invest in a

    CoolIT SYSTEMS ECO-R120 self contained water cooler

    I think with that I should be able to hit the 4GHz mark.
    What are you thinking of upgrading your GPU to? Sticking with nVidia or hopping the fence to ATI graphics?
  32. Don't go with those LCS, are sealed and many times and air cooler performs the same or better for less price. You can get the 4GHz with the Titan Fenrir, Tuniq tower, Megahalems, coolermaster V6GT, NH-D14, Silver arrow...those are very good coolers.

    I prefer nVidia, even if isn't the best now. Maybe a GTX 580 or the up coming GTX 560 (January 2011) :)
