Motherboard Purchasing Help!

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hey Guys!


I'm getting a new computer, but the problem is, is my planned motherboard that I was going to get is out-of-stock. I know don't really know what I want, as I have fewer option because others are out of stock (newegg). So my main question is This as good as the one I was going to get, which is This.

If it is, can you tell me the differences between Asus and Msi? Or do you guys recommend I just wait? (I don't really want to order it off another site, but if it comes down to it I will)


The Ram Card and Processor I'm also getting. (They would fit, right?)

and if you can affored it the Sabertooth board is a beast and is the only board on the market with a 5 year warrenty

Thanks for the recommendations.


I think I am going to go with the ASUS other then MSI, after comparing I realized they're the same thing practically, but the only difference I see is some Hyper Transport thing, which I looked it up, and did not get any results.

Avoid the MSI 970A-G45 altogether because it is known for VRM failure.
RAM is a poor choice by the way, quite the ripoff.  DDR3-1600 kits can be had for less.

So is...


Ram

Processor

Motherboard

A good combo? I am really un-decided about buying anything yet, as I really don't feel like messing something up.

There are currently three motherboards from MSI are equivalant to asus and gigabyte in terms of Durability for AMD CPU's.
1. MSI 990FXA GD80
2. MSI 990FXA GD65
3. MSI 890FXA GD65

avoid all MSI AMD motherboards except these three.
