Motherboard to go with Phenom II X6 1100T?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hello there, I'm new here!

I'm building a PC and I've decided to use the Phenom II X6 1100T but I can't decide which motherboard to use.

My budget is around 90€ or 130 USD (I'm trying to aim under that) and I've found a few promising motherboards but I'm pretty sure that there's better ones for the same price.
So obviously the processor has an AM3 socket and 6 cores and the motherboard has to support these. I'm also going to need Crossfire support as my old Sapphire 3870 HD is not going to run the newest games flawlessy on it's own. This brings me to another question: if I buy another 3870 HD to crossfire, will it double the performance so I can run the latest games on high settings? I thought that I would save a lot of money since I can get a 3870 HD for about 70 USD.

Here are the ones that I've found:
ASUS M4A89GTD_PROUSB3
ASRock 890GX Extreme3
ASUS M4A79XTD EVO
Gigabyte GA-770T-USB3

I don't think I need help deciding which one of these best suits my needs but I need help finding the best motherboard for the money.

Any help is really appreciated. Thanks smile.gif

i had the m4a89gtd for quite a while, brilliant board, overclocks very well got fsb too 310
used it under phase also, very good boad for the money. you should hit 4.1 easy with the 1100t.

trust me you wont be disapointed

Thanks for the quick reply. I will probably buy that motherboard if nobody comes to change my mind. I also need an answer to the GPU related question.

i would say the inprovment would be around 40% and would depend on the game. but i think with that system a dx11 card would be better, maybee a 5770 great card plays everthing.

really that board is rock solid, the best out the 4 bye far

I would go with either of the first two choices you have there. Please stray away from the second two.

The reason I say this is because the 1100T is a 125W TDP processor and those two bottom boards don't have the best VRM's. The top two boards appear to have quality VRM's and well heat-sinked. Personally, I would go with the Asus 89GTD. It would go well with the 1100T and would provide you with the overclock capability you need. You should be able to overclock that thing as far as it'll go on air/water with that board.

As far as the 3870 goes.. I would not waste money on such a card. I would instead save up for a better, newer, single card setup and just sell the 3870 you already have. That $70 USD could be put towards a much better setup as far as graphics are concerned.

If you did want to CrossFire however, the Asus 89GTD does have two x16 slots. biggrin.gif

$130 =/= $210.
