Try and put an intel CPU into that AM2 motherboard.


Let me know how it goes, take pictures.

EVGA makes the 750i FTW, and I guess it's okay, I just can't justify not getting the 780i if you're going with the 700 series.

master chief i do not want an am2 system
and unless you got the gtx free u got ripped of its an overpriced 8800gts 512
invest more money in your mainboard next time
and im converting because hector ruiz royally ****ed amd over and its currently a dissapointment

so back to intel

asus it obviously still crap that eliminates the 750I

leaving 680I

but you are saying evga and xfx use reference design
is that why they look so much alike i almost thought they were identical

Not really, the XFX or EVGA 680i's are where you want to be, they can overclock quads nicely where the non reference ones cant.

I was trying to be sarcastic my friend, whatever, I know it is hard to portray the light-hearted way I meant to say it on this blasted internet machine.
