I have to replace my mobo because geek squad crashed my bios on a new hp- 1214 running a FX 6100 processor and I am trying to keep the upgrade under 650.00 dollars does anybody know if this is a good fix and what ddr3 would you recommend. I do a little gaming but mostly video editing formatting and blue ray and 3-D The geek squaid have had my computer for over a month and they said their trying to fix it. But I am getting tired of waiting but I don't know who to set my new mobo and CPU. I am not qualified too. I am going with the gigabyte GA-990fxa-ud5. And AMD FX-8350 FX Series black. AM3 FD-8350FRHKBOX. But I can not make up my mind about ddr3 ram because I don't know that much about performance and I am worried about clearance for my liquid cooler. If anyone needs the rest of my specs. On devices let me know. Thanks

Give the specs
Clearance with a liquid cooler should not be a problem , whats yours custom or AIO ?
You will have to go with ddr3 ram.
how much do you need 8 gb or 16gb ?

Changing your motherboard could negate your OEM Windows license as it may be tied to your existing motherboard. It might be worth it to wait for geek sqaud to fix or take it to another place.

Well the mobo i have is a gigayte3970am-hp- (angelica). The geek squad said that as long as i did not run the O-System on two board`s that it would not constitute a illegal copy, so im not sure. They have been trying to fix the bios for for weeks now im going up their today. I only took it up their to get the dust blown out and tell me why it was overclocking because i had not done anything to it. Mainly because i am not qualified too. If they cant fix it it`s a 180 miles to Dallas thats the closest place to real tech support.

Well I finally got my system back from geek squad but I got fed up with them so I am doing my 1st Build I bought the Corsair carbide 400r case, The Asus sabertooth 990 fx R2.0 3.o- 2 Gen military spec with the Amd Fx 8350 black edition. I am going to pull my up grades out of my old system and put in my new one. But I am going to Up Grade my video card to the Nivida 670. Replace the original H/P parts in the Hpe-H8-1214 and put a for sale sign on it, its only 9 months old. Also I have to be honest about Geek squad my nivida video card went out when they were working on it and they did replace it with a new one, I got a RMA# and nivida already replaced the old card, so I am going to sell the other two and up grade to the Nivida Geforce Gtx-670 Ti
