Updating my RIG!

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
HELLO GUYS I'M NEW TO OC!

I bought a new 1090T thinking that it would just work on my old LanpartyDK-790fx as it turns out it didn't. I tried updating my bios and what not but its too complicated and I'm not that PC Expert. A friend told me to just buy a new MOBO since I'm still using a DDR2 memory, to upgrade it aswell.

Question is, which MOBO should I get and would be a best bang for the buck. I'm more willing to spend $150ish on MOBO/RAM together. Another thing is, I wanna keep the rest of my setup at the moment and just to transfer it onto the new MOBO, so that's something that needs consideration.

Raptor 150gb HD
Nvidia 8800GTS 512 (I know it's OLD)
Rosewill 600Watt PSU

PLEASE HELP!

The price looks reasonable, hence that's the only thing that makes sense to me lol.
Any quick breakdown as to why this is a good one will be good but if not, I'm willing to read.
Any ram that'll be a good pair with this one?

@andrew Which would you recommend? MOBO\\RAM I'm looking into upgrading my GFX in the next months but for now I wanna keep it. A MOBO that'll be good for a GFX upgrade too if it affects.

Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 w/4Gb G.Skill Ripjaws or RipjawsX if you want to have the ability to upgrade to Bulldozer. Can't go wrong. Otherwise 890 Series will do.

Edit: get this motherboard instead http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813157248 I didn't see the $150 budget

And this Ram: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231313 4gigs running at 1600 Mhz for $27 you can't go wrong

If you can stretch it to 160 that combination will do good
