Asus Crosshair lV formula 890fx?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
hi guys.

so I was talking with my friend last night ( computer talk )

I was trying to sell him my i7 rig! but he not interested really?

anyway he offered to sell me his crosshair lV for 50 quid. he wanna keep his 1090t and get a 990fx board for some reason?

anyway I declined @ first.

however im now thinking I could put my 8120 on this crosshair lV & get a 8320 for my saber 990fx.

im actually saving for x79 but money with me burns holes in my pocket lol!

I really like the red theme plus its sata6 & I already have red gskill mem & my 6950's are red too.

do you think I should buy it and a 8320?

im trying to hold out really for ivy-E but I could do with selling my x58 on ebay now while it still has a bit of value!

im really just itching to build something while I wait!

plus I got a spare

case
psu
2x hdd's & a ssd.

what ya think?

should I do it?

yeah it is a good deal really.

just talked with him & he said I can get it on Saturday. & he can get his new board then while I get a 8320?

im only really getting it cos its so cheap & it'll give my ssd's a little boost in sequentials?

plus gives me a reason to buy the 8320 I guess.

im probably gonna take a hit on FPS in games though I think? not by much though!

most games I play aint that demanding anyway so I wont notice really.

ive never had a ROG board aswell so hopefully ill be impressed with it.

id say it'll be better than my x58 overall.

cool, im sure you will not be disapointed aside from its stunningly good looks that will look even better paired with your already red and black components its a quality board with loads of features, I am also thinking about getting an FX 83xx cpu in the coming months, had the board near 3 years now and im so happy that my purchase will see me through a CPU upgrade.

he got 5850's now but he is getting some gtx580's @ 350 for the pair? another bargain

ill certainly be having some fun with this board & my 8120 for sure!
