Looking to buy a x38

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
My budget is 250$, I want to buy some kind of wifi thing too. So, what should I get? I also need my ZT heatsink to fit.

NT heatsink?

And I don't see any wifi X38s except for the $330 Asus DDr3 mobo.

I changed it to ZT. Sorry, typo.

I'll buy this for internet: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16833119001

What x38 board should I get in the 150$-220$ range?

The lowest I could at newegg was 189 for an abit with a mail in rebate, foxconn has one for 209 without one.

This should help

That foxconn by the way supports ddr2 and 3, so you could keep your ddr2

I used two of this to build rigs for others. They work great so far. It is a good x38 basic board.

What will happen if I stick 1066 ram in that DFI board?
