Best Mobo for AMD Phenom X4 9850

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I need help deciding on a new mobo to complement my new CPU and the rest of my system below.. I also purchased another 9600GT for sli, so that is a factor too. Every Mobo I look at it seems someone is having problems with it in some way or another. I am looking to spend 100 to 250 bucks so any feedback will be useful.


Linux Gamer For Life!!

I may have put this in the wrong forum since its about motherboards...opps.

That there has been a record breaking board for that chip. BUT there is hype and speculation on the benefit of the new southbridge chip, the SB750, that is supposed to offer better OCing of Phenoms large and small.
