More about what motherboard
  1. lookginf for something simlar to the xfx 790i
  2. ASRock P45X3 Deluxe LGA 775 -$79.99
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157164
    Seems to have a cmos battery glitch that looks easily fixed from reading the reviews.
  3. That looks perfect, great thanks : )
  4. Do you know where i could purchase this for delivery to the uk?

    ps. i've never heard of 'asrock' can anyone with experience with this make give their thoughts?
  5. bump, would like to be able to buy this board.
  6. Sorry i looked around UK sites for that board and nobody has P45 mobos of any make they're all P43 and DDR2 Slim pickens as 775 is fast becoming a relic

    yes, this seems to be the case, i think i'll go for another pre owned 790i. since i loved that board, and i can't afford a new CPU at the moment : (

    Scan says they have them instock but the price is ridiculous

    otherwise you could buy an i3 530 and a P55 board for that kinda loot and still use the ram.
  9. i dont understand why its so expensive >.>

    It was their flagship board for that socket and cost over $300 US dollars when new.
    Plus scarcity will drive prices up it still cost over $300 in N.A.
    I would seriously consider moving on to a different platform and reusing your DDR3 ram.
