TheYonderGod, I did not even think of a PCI IDE card. That's a damn good idea, I'll have to update the list thumb.gif

+ rep to all you guys.


As far as budget goes, ~$250 would probably be the MAX I would want to spend.

You'd still be under $250 with a 960T, it's up to you but personally I think Athlon IIs, especially x3s are a waste of money. I wish I hadn't bought mine (I didn't realize at the time that my 840 was really an Athlon that that slapped the Phenom name on) Honestly you probably wont notice much if any difference with your uses though, I just like things to be more "future proof"

Nice find on the ASrock board. SATA III, USB 3.0, AM3+ w/ 4 ram slots AND a coaxial S/PDIF port! thumb.gif

With a 960T and a PCI IDE card, that puts me at ~$259.59 shipped (not including the Samsung 30nm ram because its not in stock), but at least it looks like a solid board. That defiantly got the wheels turning.

Anyone have the ASRock 870 Extreme3 R2.0? Does it overclock nicely, and are there any known issues?

Updated first post.

Looking like a solid rig to me thumb.gif A little over-budget, but I would rather spend a little more than get a bunch of crap hardware that might or might not work.

Opinions on new setup?
