Recommend me a motherboard

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
CPU: phenom II x4 965 140W


pc use: currently hooked up to 5 monitors (possibly more in future). heavy multi-tasking audio, video programs while watching browsers refresh on other monitors.

my current motherboard is sata ii, usb 2.0.
current main drive is the crucial m4 128GB. i dont know how much the m4 is being capped by the sata ii.

Would also prefer the motherboard support 2560x1600 so that i could connect my 30" on it instead of it being hooked up on the gpu slowing the eyefinity.
i have a 6970 and another spare 6970 which i've never used but could use it for my eyefinity setup. my current board only supports 1 gpu. i would prefer to run 2 monitors through intergrated graphics, and 3-5 monitors on the 2 6970's.
i'm currrently running 1 intergrated 1920x1200, 3 eyefinity 1920x1200 + 2560x1600 on 1 6970.

on my wishlist i'd like to run (3 monitors from 1 card)x2 that is 6 monitors on the pci-e gpus + 2 intergrated for a total of 8 monitors. the real estate is just there to have everything up for the most part. the more real estate for me the better but i think i'll max out at 8 (24" monitors). that's why i want a 3770k or some cpu air overclocked to similar speeds and plenty memory.
the more i add monitors the more i need more memory. 4g to 8gb was a pretty good upgrade when i had 3-4 monitors. but now with 5-6 monitors having everything up i have to close out programs or tabs which i don't want to have to do. so now i need at least 16GB memory.

the system will not be water cooled because my tower is a mobile rig that i take to my gigs too..

i would like to be recommended a pretty "high-end looking" motherboard. if there was a website i could pick out features that'd be easy but none seem to exist.

help.

i currently have 2x4 8GB ddr2 and another new spare 2x2 4GB i'd like to use, so first and foremost i'd like a motherboard with ddr2 (and USB 3.0). but i already have a pci-ex1 usb 3.0 card.

if i cannot get a board that can do more than 8gb ddr2 memory, i'll do ddr3.

would also like the board to have sata iii which is pretty standard by now. i dont know whether to stick with my cpu or ditch it for an intel i7...

There is not a mobo with DDR2, Sata III and USB 3.0, so you need another mobo.
What is your budget for mobo and ram and how much ram you need or want to run?

i want at least 16GB if running ddr3. no real budget because i'm gonna hunt for a used motherboard. that'll slash about $40 of a high quality motherboard.
