I was looking at the ASUS Rampage III Formula for a mobo, but some of the reviews say it's not that outstanding for the price. I currently own a P5Q Deluxe and have been impressed with it. What would be a good mobo to go with? Open to any suggestions.
Lastly, what type of memory configuration should I go with? I'm thinking 1600 or 2000? 6GB or 12GB? Brand wise, I was thinking Crucial. Always hear good things about them. I have Corsair dominators, but had to RMA twice. I'd prefer to stay away from them now.
Wow I hadn't even considered going that route. Thank you for your help. I also should have mentioned I already have a 21.3 inch 1920x1080 dell, so it's even closer to the 2k mark. Time to start ordering parts
The 980x should perform better in multithreaded applications, however, the higher clock speeds of the sandy bridge processors will allow them to outperform the 980x in everything that can't use 6 cores/12 threads.
