Amd X2 6000+

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I have no idea of choosing a motherboard since I usually buy Shuttle's.

Anyways I will be building a computer relatively soon and I need some help choosing a good gaming mobo for a X2 6000+ Windsor. Price does not matter, just need for performance. THANKS IN ADVANCE!

Arguably (of course), the best motherboard for that processor would be the M2N32-SLI Premium Vista Edition .

It runs about $210 at newegg, uses the 590 SLI Northbridge chipset, and is the newer version of the M2N32-SLI Deluxe. I'd still recommend it even if you aren't going to run VISTA.

Lol, you said its was coming so here it is.

If you want the MOST performance with price no object, seriously get yourself a C2D after the new price drops. You can get a quad core 2.4Ghz that has been seen to OC to 3.4-6GHz on air for $266. You can also buy a 3.0Ghz C2D e6850, which should also hit 3.6+Ghz no problem for the same price.


And, Intels new x38 chipset is debuting very soon. This WILL support SLI, and has been reported to run 8-10% faster than comparable nvidia chipset motherboards, this is because both the PCI-e lanes are run form the NB on the x38

Lolz, I knew this was inevitable. He does have a very good point though.

I'm not trying to be a prick or what ever. I'm just stating perfectly true facts that you can buy yourself a Quad or 3.0Ghz Intel for $266 with a brand new OC monster of a chipset that even runs SLI.

If he truly wants the most performance, Intel is just in the lead. Take a look at this link and tell me if you see 1 AMD processor.
Intel = 30 AMD = 0

Oh, I don't think you're being a prick at all. Quite the opposite. Heck, I should have said what you did initially. If we really want to help people make the best decision with their hard earned cash, they need to know this: Intel is pretty much outright the best choice considering bang for your buck. (At least right now.)

Well, even though it may appear my opinion is biased (because I have one myself), I honestly think the best bang for your buck ATM is the e6600. It's the lowest speed C2D "Conroe" (2.4GHz), and at $225 can easily be clocked past the highest end "Conroe" (2.93 GHz), that will run you $975.
