Quad core mobo suggestions

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Ok setup is in my sig. Want to keep it all as is but swap out my mobo for an AM2+ and a 9850. What mobo would you guys suggest below $100 that has sli, uses DDr2-800 and had enough sata ports? Not too mention I need to be able to OC. Another question should I go for vista or keep XP? Lastly will a cooler made for AM2 fit on AM2+?

That board isn't gonna happen for under $100... these are the only boards I can find that support Phenom/SLI:

By far, most boards that support Phenom are AMD chipset boards, and thus support Crossfire (if they support dual GPUs).

Well I found an MSI SLI570 chipset but it wont do the full HT speed.

Your best bet would be to either wait or buy a AMD board with ATi graphic cards.

Beware of the mobo that you buy.

Most of the mobo AM2+ support the AMD phenom 9850 ……. STOCK or with just a little bit of OC.

Most of the BIOS for the AM2+ are still in the early stages. In some occasions this will make your phenom 9850 very unstable

If you want to be brand loyal... wait.

If you want what's currently the best performing/overclocking CPU, look at the Q6700 (or the Q6600 if you want to save a little).

However, don't expect any motherboards that do SLI for under $100. You'd have to spend at least $150, and for a real nice board around $200.

Thanks man, not interested in being brand loyal AMD has lost me as far as that goes. I want bang for buck and the Q6700 does look good

Is this my only option? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131290

Any ideas if a GeminII will fit on it with dual video cards?
