Hello! My computer is about 3 years old. I have recently upgraded it with a better PSU and a better graphic card. Now my motherboard has died and I need a new one. So my question is which one should I take and which chipset is the best for overclocking CPU's ? ( I want to OC my e8500 "to his limit" )
Processor: Intel Core Duo CPU E8500
Memory: 4GB Corsair XMS2 DHX 400MHz 4-4-12
Hard Drive: 1TB Western Digital Caviar Green
Video Card: MSI Nvidia GTX 560 Ti Hawk
Operating System: Windows 7 Professional 64-bit/ Ubuntu
Motherboard: Gigabyte EP45-DS4 rev 1.0
PSU: Rasurbo 650w equal Cougar CMX550w
I was told that the Asus rampage extreme or the asus formula would be good ?
for socket 775 = gigabyte ep45-ud3p, but just save up some more and get a new gen cpu/mobo/ram.
you are already going to need to buy a new mobo, ram is insanely cheap now, so the cpu is all you would need to save up for, everything else would transfer right over.
