More about looking good board 7770 decenty
  1. Micro-Atx or Atx?
  2. Ugh not sure yet, Probly atx
  3. Ok got a few more specifics, want to have pcie 3.0 I thinkx 16 with option to eventually crossfire. And was curious if speed diff between Sata 3gb is really that noticeably slower than 6?
  4. GIGABYTE GA-970A-D3 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard was thinking this would be better for my needs now
  5. Your looking for something to handle HD 7770, 8GB of RAM, and a quad core CPU? If people say your shooting yourself in the foot, don't listen to them. If you want to go with Intel i5 3570K, then it's a good one. But inexpensive would be a AMD Phenom II or a FX-4100. What type of quad core did you have in mind?
  6. Was thinking of going with this, but if ther is better board or CPU for 200ish plz let me know.

    was thinking putting these together, good or bad idea? [...] d_sim_e_39

    AMD FX-6200 Processor, 3.8 6 Socket AM3 - FD6200FRGUBOX and GIGABYTE GA-970A-D3 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

    Bad idea!
    Go with quad core Phenom II
    Asus has a nice motherboard, also is very cheap in the store near me.

    Try this:
    Asus M5A97 R2.0
    Phenom II X4 965 BE

    I'm not sure about PCIe 3.0 support. You should check on Asus' site.
  9. ok so if i choose that board and cpu would i be able to oc that proccessor and to what?
  10. Well that one can be OC to 3.8-4.0-4.2GHz depending on the CPU cooler (you need aftermarket cooler). I think it's gonna be stable on 4.0 with a nice cpu cooler.

    And the motherboard doesn't support pcie 3.0 .
  11. for 20 bucks or so more, would i be that better off going with a 990 board? and any suggestion on capable cpu cooler?
