EVGA nForce4 SLI NVIDIA Socket 775 - Page 5

post #41 of 53
There have always been issues with compatibility between nForce chipset and Intel CPUs, so I would do a little research on whether or not the Cedar Mill is compatible with that eVGA motherboard.

Okay, now you're kinda contradicting yourself. I thought only PCI-E cards could use SLI? Well, you only have one PCI-E x16 slot on that motherboard.

You missed the point...

If you want SLI, your going to have to buy a new PSU (the 20 dollar sunbeam won't cut it), and probably a new CPU (due to bottlenecking), so why go SLI? I mean, seriously, a 7600GT will play all games with some sort of eye candy. Long story short, SLI on budget weren't made to go hand in hand.

I didn't know you needed everything on your new build. If C2D is a little to high for you right now I'd advise you to look at amd. You'll find a good sli board for cheap. And a good processor that isn't going to bottleneck you for cheap as well. I'd recommend going for AM2 board as it will offer better upgrades in the future.

I was actually thinking about going AMD at one point. But, the processor speeds and everything seemed a bit too confusing. I went to one website to look at the AMD processors, and it gave the name of the processor, but didn't show the actual clockspeed. So, I was left with some arcaic numbers and little more... where as the Intel processors actually give the speed in the name.

that is why you buy from www.newegg.com or a fourm or site.

Ok, Here is a simple setup that will be much better than the Intel one for the same price.

Processor
Motherboard
RAM

Of course, all the extras from your previous post should give you a total around 700.

It wasn't easy to say. I have to admit they are the best value for the buck if your on a tight budget.

@wowza: I just have one small comment to make. The processor I have down is a 3.2GHz. The one you have listed there is only 2.0GHz. You're saying that the 2.0GHz AMD processor will run faster than a 3.2GHz Intel Celeron D?

EDIT: Scratch that. I just looked at the actual specs. Though the clockspeed is slower, it has MUCH better rates on the memory cache.
