Motherboard and RAM compatibility Tags: Homebuilt DDR3 Compatibility Motherboards Systems Last response: January 4, 2011 12:03 PM in Systems Share cperez January 4, 2011 11:20:49 AM Hi, I am looking forward to buying the Asus M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 motherboard. However, on its specs it only lists DDR3 1066/1333/2000 OC as supported. Does this mean I can't use DDR3-1600 with it? By the way, would you recommend getting DDR3-1600 CL9 or DDR3-1333 CL7? They're both around the same price. Kinda off topic, but I don't want to make another one. This motherboard has a built in Radeon 4250 GPU. I am getting a Radeon 5850 myself, but would Hybrid Crossfiring them be worth it?

Those two RAM kits would be pretty similar in performance, I'd personally go for the lower latency 1333Mhz kit. I'm pretty sure you can't hybrid crossfire a 4250 and a HD5850, even if you could It certainly wouldn't be worth it ( you'd get far better performance just using the HD5850). cperez January 4, 2011 11:58:48 AM I guess I'm going for the 1333Mhz kit, seeing as I'll be 100% sure it will work, and the performance will be similar. I knew you could only crossfire 5850 with other 5800 series cards, but I still felt like asking. Thanks a lot. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
