Build tht Im ordering on the 21st, suggestions plz

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
This build will be used for TF2, ET:QW and some later released titles. The reason I am going quad is I hope not to update until the generation after Nehlahem is released and mainstream (so its going to be awhile). Like I said I will not be ordering until the 14th so i can take all suggestions until then

EDIT: updated

The BioStar IP45 will clock higher than any other board, it currently holds the highest FSB clock to date. Get MX-2, not AS5, it beats it by a long shot

Oh, so MX-2 and according to InsideHW the P5Q Pro can reach 3.7 on a quad so i think it will be good enough

The BioStar can get 738FSB. Oh, and the Xig SHOULD come with a retention bracket.

yeah if i was to pick a mobo, i'd get the p5q pro. gives you room for an additional 4870x2 or vanilla 4870 when they are cheap enough for you
