I had the same issue when my z68 board died but luckily z77 was still around.
haha yeah. We need a video!
I saw those floating around. $60 what a deal. Low clock speed but wish I had an x79 board lying around. Guess you could just use a "cheap" one since there's no oc'ing.
Ok dang I figured it was a motherboard. That seems to be the toughest part of going to an old platform. The mobo, they get expensive and hard to find.
You don't say something has a $700 value and then sell it for $700. Some of you guys are reading this wrong.
Anyone know why I can get a 3930k on ebay for the price of a 2600k? I know a lot are ES and QS not looking at those. I understand the 3930k is old but I figure it would have a higher value being a six core. Is it because the boards are more common? I've been wanting a six core for a while but expected higher prices.
Oops my bad thanks.
The 6100 bottlenecks the 270x? You may not get every speck of performance you could if you had an intel chip but I would think it would still run well. Depending on how CPU dependent the games are you play.I have the exact same 970 mine boosts to 1430 mhz out of the box. I came from crossfire r9 270s and the 970 performs better. So your looking at around twice the performance witht he gtx 970.
Get the 970 its a great card.
