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:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...6R&Tpk=P35-DQ6

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.
I've never had this board, but what about this? It seems to get great reviews. It had no RAID controller, and doesn't support firewire or SLI, but if you don't need any of these things, that's a simple way to cut some costs: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128059 - EDIT: This is actually the board that Xecuter2 mentioned

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!

Ok well I'm still worried on buying the board if the heatsink is dented, my budget on buying a new board and ram is about $146 with taxes and shipping, here is what I'm picking out I need some opinions.

Mobo:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128084

Ram:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231098
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145015

Need some opinions I'm going to be buying this tonight since I practically get next day shipping with the Egg (I'm not too far from them).

Don't buy the board with the dented heatsink... stay away from it. I'd recommend the Gigabyte board I mentioned earlier, which was about $80, leaving you with $60 for RAM. I can't goto the site right now because it's down unfortunately. I'll check in the AM
