Hey guys, Just today my ddr2 socket 775 mobo has stopped working. Due to having a bit of spare cash i have decided to get another one straight away. As ddr3 ram is dirt cheap i have decided to go for a DDR3 socket 775 mobo.
Don't self bump or the mods will delete your thread.
Yes both boards support DDR3 1333. Really there is no point in getting a DDR3 board and buying extra DDR3 RAM if you already have DDR2. Unless you are running at 400FSB you are not even taking advantage of DDR2 800.
Sorry, its just i really need an answer quick as i am going to be buying the mobo tomorrow. I currently have 4gb of ddr2 at 667 mhz. Due to the fact that ddr3 is slightly faster and dirt cheap i have decided to go for that. So which mobo would you suggest?
Yh thats what i really want to do. But unfortunately i am still at school and cant seem to get a part time job. Also before the mobo broke my system could run skyrim at about 40 fps on ultra settings so until i have money surplas there is really no need for a major upgrade
Obsolete in the sense that no new chips are being produced. A Core2Duo/Quad at 3Ghz+ is still a decent chip for just about anything but you would not buy one new. They are also very expensive even costing more than a much more powerful newer CPU due to demand.
I got my E6750 for £40 and have it oc'd to 3.5 ghz stable. When i can get a part time job i plan to build a new pc with the ivy bridge equivalent of the 2500k. But for now im just going to get this gigabyte board. Cheers for the help anort
