Motherboard better than M2N32-SLI Deluxe?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I currently have an M2N32-SLI Deluxe and I was wondering if I should get a newer better motherboard because I will be getting a Phenom X4 9850 BE and a GTX280 (planning on going SLI when my card starts getting a lot cheaper, at most $300). Please give me suggestions if I should. I am looking for these things:
  • Good overclocking capability
  • Full AM2+ support
  • DDR2 1066 (ONLY IF IT IS A WORTHY UPGRADE. Please let me know if DDR2 1066 is really all that great)
  • Phenom X4 9850 BE support
  • At least two card SLI (none of those stupid PCI Express slots that slow down when you use multiple cards); Three way SLI would be great
I really don't care much about anything else. If the board can meet these things then I am pretty sure it has everything else I would need at all.

You know that would be great, but they both are Crossfire. I don't need Crossfire. I need SLI.

Why don't you reconsider and get a 780I board with Intel quad?

9850BE is more expensive than the q6600...and performs less. (Not trying to start a war, but those are just the facts)


I am only saying that because you ask for a board that overclocks well. What is the point to have a good overclocking board, but cripples by the CPU?

.... just a word on the 750a boards, though.... when using both PCI-e slots in SLI, they will run at x8.
