Where to buy939 crossfire mobo?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I want to go crossfire but wont have the money to upgrade my CPU+memory+mobo+video card all at the same time for a while

So im thinking of getting a good deal on a 939 crossfire board, buy another 3870 and then do the rest when i get money.

I cant find any sites that have them.. help!

I would suggest waiting until you can upgrade CPU/mobo/RAM, then doing the video card later.

Well first off I agree with Crazy9000. You can't really find a good deal on a crossfire 939 board unless you catch one on ebay like this one. I have this one and even though it can run 16x 16x crossfire it has its problems. The ULi raid controller sucks, its bugged and DFI never planned to fix it. I use the Sil 3114 raid controller which is only 1.5gb/s and some people said they even have problems with that one (but I never did). Now this boards ocs really well but I don't think its worth it unless you get it for cheap. I found this site that carries it, but I'm not sure how reputable they are (all I did was use google shopping with the name of the board).

There's also a Crossfire equivilant of my board as well. I don't know the model number off hand though.

Question:
Why not trade your 3870 for an 8800GT or 9600GT or something, and SLI?

I dumped nVidia because of their drivers.. besides Crossfire scales a lot better than SLi

Higgins,
You'd better put on your Asbestos Suit and jump into your Flame-Bunker after a Comment like that!

Cheers & Good Luck
