Is this Motherboard any good?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi there

Well some people adviced me I should buy a AM3+ board instead of a AM3. I wanted to buy a Asus CrossHair IV formula, but because I got adviced for a AM3+ I looked for a AM3+ version and I found a CrossHair V Formula, Sadly its way to expensive. So I looked around and found this Motherbord:

This is the website im going to order from. Its the same price as the AM3 IV formula but I don't know if its anygood for my upcoming build that is in my signature

I'm a little confused, you already have a crosshair IV....

Are you upgrading or something. Also, as far as I'm aware bulldozer (and it is dozing) works in an AM3 board without any issues.

ryanbob1234 that's the supported max memory...

Oh

Dude, just stick with the IV, it's not as expensive and it's just as awesome

Screw AM3+ you'll be fine with the build in your sig. Although, change your GPU and the PSU. The 5770's are LAAAAAME!

Because you had 5770 in xfire in there,

OHHHH I misread your sig Nah, those are epic

The PSU though, go with the Antec truepower new or the Corsair TX650V2. the 650w is more than enough for xfire with a massive OC as well :d
