Please Help! Which mobo Is Better On A Budget?
Mar 12, 2012, 10:44 PM
I've been looking for a board that'll suit my needs. I only need it for gaming/media and other video applications. Here are the boards:
ASRock 870iCafe R2.0 AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s ATX AMD Motherboard
ASUS M5A78L-M LX PLUS AM3 AMD 760G Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
ASUS M5A97 AM3
AMD FX-4100 Zambezi 3.6GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) Socket AM3 95W Quad-Core
XFX Double D HD-687A-ZDFC Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666)
HITACHI HDS721050CLA362 (0F10381) 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive
Thermaltake 550w Power SUpply ( SLI & Crossfire ready ).
I really don't need SLI, overclocking or any other stuff. Just something to up my memory every once in a while. What would be a good option?
