Motherboard Upgrade Tags: Motherboards Asus BATSHTCRAZY January 23, 2013 5:34:32 PM Hey Tom's. So I'm pretty sure I'm going to upgrade my motherboard. I asked Newegg about a couple things but they told me they couldn't answer any questions because they only have manufacturer information. So I figured I'd go here. This is the motherboard I have now: Asus M5A97 http://www.asus.com/Motherboard/M5A97/ I want to upgrade to this motherboard: Asus Crosshair V Formula-Z http://www.asus.com/ROG/CROSSHAIR_V_FORMULAZ/ Now what I want to know is Will I get a considerable enough performance boost from upgrading to warrant me spending $220 for the new motherboard? And will the new motherboard be compatible with my CPU/RAM Oh and will the new motherboard fit in my case? I have: Thermaltake V3 AMD Black Edition http://www.thermaltakeusa.com/Product.aspx?S=1308&ID=20... My other specs are: AMD FX-8350 4.0ghz 8-core CPU 16gb G.Skill RipjawsX DDR3 1866mhz Thanks in advance for any help, it's much appreciated! More about : motherboard upgrade Can't find your answer ?
