Looking for a decent MotherBoard. Quick help needed!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone,

I am building a new rig with a 7970, and I am looking for a motherboard with:

1- 2 PCI 2/3 ports so I can crossfire a second 7970 later on.

2- I am buying a CPU soon, a 3570k. So the motherboard should be compatible with that. Would it be possible to find a motherboard could support my current Q8300 and the 3570k at the same time?

3 - Good overclocking capabilities

4- around the ~$100 mark

Thansk for your time everyone.

You won't find a motherboard to fit both processors because they use a different socket.

As for the mobo have a look at the Asrock Z77 Pro3 or Pro4.
