post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
hi everyone I am planing on upgradeing to an intel cpu from my old amd cpu and I need some help on what motherboard is really good at overclocking since I am going to just upgrade my cpu and motherborad and will be staying with my 4 gig of ddr2 800 memory its been kinda hard for me to decide what motherboard would be good

my new processer

1.Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 Yorkfield 2.83GHz LGA 775 95W Quad-Core
Processor


now I just need you guys help on which motherboard to get that will let me overclock that processor really well

I heard that the new nforce 790 are having alot of problems so I was thinking on getting a x48 mortherboard and was thinking of getting the GIGABYTE GA-X48-DQ6 Motherboard but don't know it my geforce video card is compatible with it or if there's a better option that you guys can recommend

thanks for the help

Yea I beleive you can run one Nvidia card on a crossfire enabled motherboard in one pcie slot , but cant get SLI on it without hacked drivers. I could be mistaken.

a single pci-e slot is all the same you can run a single card on a crossfire board but not sli. As for the mobo i dont know much about the new x48 chips, thats a great board if you have the cash otherwise you can spend less money on that.

Edit: check this board
