Also check the voltage on your ram. It should be 1.65 volts or lower for 1155.
thanks for that, was doing some research on eli and fire/crossfire and all the other names and versions! honestly.. i prefer ATI cards anyway, and 2 GPU's is the most ill ever want...
so the p8p67 board, Â£127 from buyer, pro Rev 3 , thats around my budget and i seem to like asus for some reason.. but that seems the best board for around Â£150.
forgot about the ram, i got it on the cheap and its 1.5V but i could get Â£30 for those and invest in some ocz ram as i wouldn't mind some decent ram this time.
so the asus p8p67 pros sorted and the processor, now its time to research a new GPU, although i may stick with my 4870 although I'm worried that may bottleneck..
are p67 the best chipset to go with? i like the sound of the z68 boards, also from asus/asrock..
