Guess I gotta see how things go when the 9800GTX comes out, seeing how there was a major price drop with the 7800GTX when the 8800GTX I'll be set if the price comes down properly.
I just can't imagine having a card like that in my rig though, I have never seen a 8800GTX in my life.
Well how about this:
Theres a listing on craigslist for the mobo at $80 which is a killer price since it's half the price and the only issue is a dent on the north bridge heatsink. I have a choice between that or a XFX 680i LT at the same price.
Ugh I'd be more then happy to buy more if my budget would allow it.
This is a good board too, and very similar to what I have: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813127031
More people seem to be going with the Gigabyte P35 board on these forums so it may be easier to get some help, but both these boards should serve you well. For this subject, I'd recommend creating a new topic in Intel Motherboards and telling them that you want to get a new mobo and RAM, and that your budget is an issue (that you'd like to keep it under $100 for the mobo) and I'm sure that they'll say one of these two boards. If you do this, send me a PM with the thread
Oh, and don't get a used motherboard... if the heatsink is dented, it had to take a decent hit, which makes you wonder if there's any slight damage to the actual north bridge itself...
Let me know!
