Build me the best Mobo/Memory

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Just as the title says guys, I am looking to go all out on this one. Don't knock me but I am ordering a 4870 to go along with this and I will be going for a second one in 2 or so months since I can't afford a 4870x2 all at once when it comes out, the 15% extra performance wont break me . So I will be needing an X-fire setup.

Things I want:

- Crossfire Mobo of course
- DDR2 only
- Awesome overclocking memory
- Ability to get me to 450FSB+
- Newegg.com please ^_^

Thanks a lot guys

Thats the best, but if you want a good crossfire MB at a reasonable price i'd get:

That's the board I was looking at, although I see so many people recommend G.SKILL for memory, I personally have never dealt with them. But are they really the best overclocker's memory? I was thinking along the lines of some Crucial's (although a lot of DOA's) or GEIL (they altered their warranty).

Mushkin is also a good brand for memory with good support. The Ascents and Redlines are some good kits.
