Help selecting Mobo!
Feb 5, 2012, 12:10 AM
I'm fixing to buy an AMD FX-4100 Zambezi 3.6ghz -
And I just dunno what Mobo to purchase with it... My current mobo will NOT support it. I was looking at an ASUS saber tooth -
But 180 is kind of high in my budget. I can do it, but I wouldn't know if it would really be worth it. I really like AMD, and ASUS...

i3 2120, i5 2400, i5 2500k, or even the g850. all beat the fx4100

If I went Intel, what Mobo? I know nothing about Intel compatible mobos...

Almost certainly the ASRock Z68 Extreme3, if you do end up going Intel.

GIGABYTE GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68
