post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
hi guys... i am looking at my options.....

i know you get diffrent mobo's and all and i know some mobos are not rilliant for OCing and even some cpu's.... eg: the whole phase change 4 +1 ...


this build is going to be for some OCing and gaming.... pls recomend me a good mobo mid range and something like the AM3+ and CPU and corsair ram that will work with this build as well pls.

btw... it must be able to do sli as well pls.


cheers

This board i think is a brilliant mid range AM3 board
http://www.scan.co.uk/products/gigab...sata-raid-matx

I got it for my bro's build and it only cost me £90, matched it with an amd 1090t hex core

I love theese ones:

AM3+
100€
ASRock 890GX PRO3
ASUS M5A88-V EVO

Little cheaper 89-82€
ASRock 880G PRO3
ASUS M5A87

For more perfomance wait to corshair V xtreme and formula, but thats more expensive xd

AM3

100€
ASRock 890GX Extreme3
ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO

Little cheaper 89-82€
ASUS: Look some cheaper models than M4A88TD-V EVO if u dont need sata or usb 3.0

And for more performance, corshair IV xtreme and formula

Processor AM3: phII x4 955 (3,2ghz) or phII x6 1090t (3,2ghz). AM3+ should wait

RAM: I really like G-skill ripjaws cl7

In deed, in two/three days i´ll get the m4a88TD-V EVO (am3 version) and the phIIx6 1090t (i think i've said that 20 times since i arrived here ), and it must work perfectly

you can always hack it to support Sli, there's a thread on here for it somewhere. I'll see if I can find it for you
