$100 Mobo with 4 ram slot


What's the best value mobo with 4 ram slot?

I'll be buying these

psu: Seasonic (S12II) 520watts PSU 80Plus Bronze 2700
cpu: Intel Pentium G640 2.8GHz (Dual Core) 2390
ASrock H77 Pro4/MVP 4140
Crucial Ballistix Sport 2x4GB DDR3-1600 CL9 1920
hdd/ssd: Intel 330 Series 60gb sata3 2999
atx: NZXT Source 210 Elite 2250
TOTAL 16399

Primary usage is for Java Programing (so lot's of file I/O & lot's of RAM).

I plan to buy another Crucial Ballistix Sport 2x4GB DDR3-1600 CL9 about 3-4mos from now. Is that ok?
Also is this a good choice?

Then, if I'm lucky upgrade to i3 or (or i5 if really get lucky).
Not a serious gamer, but I do play

Thanks in advance!

  1. that looks pretty good, everything is compatible.
  2. any competitor to ASrock H77 Pro4/MVP 4140 ?

    How about I get Asrock B75M DGS = PHP 2870.00 and get a single 8gb stick? then another 8gb stick later (maybe it will get cheaper in 3-4mos)?

    Or how about I get B75M DGS & then get a dual 8gb stick
    ram: G.Skill RipJaws X (Dual) 2x8gb ddr3 1600 CL9 (F3 1600C9D 16GXM) PHP 3990.00
    ram: G.Skill Ares (Dual) 2x8gb ddr3 1333 CL9 (F3 1333C9D 16GAO) PHP 3080.00
    ram: G.Skill Ares (Dual) 2x8gb ddr3 1600 CL10 (F3 1600C10D 16GAO) PHP 3360.00
    ram: G.Skill Ares (dual) 2X8gb ddr3 1600 CL9 (F3 1600C9D 16GAR) PHP 3990.00
    ram: Avexir Core (Dual) 2x8gb ddr3 1333 C9 Blue LED PHP 3180.00
    ram: Avexir Core (Dual) 2x8gb ddr3 1600 C10 Blue LED PHP 3550.00
    ram: Avexir mPower (Dual) 2x8gb ddr3 1600 C10 Blue LED PHP 3800.00

    Or 16GB is an overkill, buy an i3 instead? hmmm (overbudget)

    Or 16GB is an overkill, get the
    Crucial Ballistix Sport 2x4GB DDR3-1600 CL9
    and save the money for later
  3. built an i3 server using this mb..had no issue drop the 8g of ram and cpu in and she fired right up.
  4. i personally have ripjaws and sniper ram from gskill in my 2 computers, i would recommend going with 1600 memory and always get matched ram. i have no clue how much ram programming takes, but 8gb is typically enough for most people unless you do video editing. i would save up and get an i5,vits more future proof and just plain awesome but i3 would work good too
  5. Vits?

    I've just found out that g640 is a sandy. How bad it is comapared to i3 3220?

    Is there a cheaper ivy than i3 3220?

    I'm considering buying a used g640 or g630 or an i3, is that ok? Is there a chance it can damage my brand new hardware?
  6. I saw a 2nd hand Core™2 Quad Processor Q6700 for 2500php. Thats about $2 diff w the bnew g640. Not familliar w/ older cpus though. Is this a good buy?

    Any page where I can easily review processors?
