budget upgrade any good? - Page 3

post #21 of 23
I believe I have heard from one person before who has unlocked a Phenom II x2 to x4 succesfully on the M5A97 with no issues, but I can't remember who that person is.
ASUS makes really good GPUs, especially the DirectCU ones; the DirectCU have better VRM setup for improved overclocking, stability and reliability.

How much are you looking to pay for a 6850? I want to upgrade to a 570 by selling my 6850.
