What oc motherboard?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My bdays is coming and i want to buy my pc a upgrade.
RAID 0 never worked at full speed(disks only run at SATA) and i could never overclock.
My budget is 150$.
What would be a nice mobo that would let me oc well?
with the new chipset would be nice.
And btw is my ram in the way?
Maybe i should get new ram instead???
thanks

well, whenever you have ONBOARD RAID-0, it's always preety limited. the key is to get a high quality hardware raid controller but those are really expensive(areca raid controllers etc...).

-EDIT- I see you dont live in the states.

1. Buy an extra 1GB stick, or sell that stick and buy two DDR2-800. I tmight be hard to find inexpensive sticks that ship to you, I though you were in the states at first but the cost of ddr2-800 vs 667 wont be worth it to your location.

2. If possible, save an extra 100$ and buy an 8800GTS 320MB around 250$ shipped on ebay..

it will be much better than buying a new board unless you plan on upgrading the cpu aswell. Motherboard upgrades dont help much in overclocking for you (your cpu has a high multiplier so you dont need a high fsb)
