So I guess my questions for you guys, given that you know the overall theme I am going with here, and given my system specs, as follows:
i5-750 (LGA 1156)
8GB Corsair XMS3 (1600MHz
2 WD 320 SATA Hard Drives (going to put these into RAID configuration over Easter break when I rebuild the system)
Sapphire 6950
and of course the Trooper case...
What board would you recommend I get for durability, performance, and "sharp looking" (though this is the least of my concerns)? I can't think that I'll be spending over $200 on it... What do you guys think?

MSI P55-GD80 - $119 + free shipping

Direct link to board............http://msi.com/product/mb/P55-GD80.html

I've bought stuff from this guy before. Never had a problem. And it's an awesome board for your processor.

I have ASRock Fatal1ty Professional Gen3 , highest-end for 1155 for sale if u are interested (awesome board) smile.gif -> But I am upgrading to 2011.
post #2133 of 12422
I would love to be able to get any of those 1155 boards, I really would. But I have an 1156 lol.. I'm not looking to jump to a new processor too. I just got off the phone with some people and they also recommend I look at ASUS or Gigabyte boards, especially since they have good warranties.

Time to go shopping!

Welcome fellow BF3 player wink.gif What is your tag in the game? also, alot of respect for your decision in serving. i need someone to say a few prayers for me in BF3 as i die so much lol

I researched boards for your socket and it seems gigabyte and asus where popular in the day. However go for the upper leg of these boards. especially the asus. i would go with a PRO series if you choose them. because the others(asus) had distorted reviews. the other problem i found was actually finding them in stock. maybe im looking in the wrong place, i know in 09 to 2010 they were everywhere. Now, not so much.
the gigabyte one was very much praised even over the asus.
post #2137 of 12422
sorry for the double post, but that came out weird ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
post #2138 of 12422
Yes, I'm having the same problem- finding one that is. It was even recommended if I wanted to dump some extra money to go with a sabertooth. Again, not coming back with much. If I go with ASUS it'll most likely be the P7P PRO. I think that's the more expensive/better version of my MB. If I cannot find what what I'm looking for on Amazon, I'm going to have to turn to ebay -_-

My in-game tag is actually PhantomLlama. I miss playing right now. Think I can get by with running only 4GB RAM with my setting maxed, other than the deferred graphics?

I think we can ALL use more prayers wink.gif Thanks for the encouragement!

Well it's official. I have a P7P55D PRO board being shipped to home, so come Monday/Tuesday my system should be up and running at full capacity!


Now I can turn my recreational time back to gaming and planning my BF3 mod. We'll see how things work with running on half memory and my core speed reduced to 3.3GHz...

**EDIT** Nope, Battlefield 3 doesn't look like it's going to work. Supposedly I am running out of memory and I'm getting error messages. Oh well, I pretty much figured that would be the case...
