It seems that 9850 is still more expensive than Q6600

£50 for a board with excellent overclocking, chip support, and crossfire!
I overlooked that board when it came out, thinking that it was too inexpensive for a CF board.

I'll wait for AMD's next move after Phenom, then decide again if I'm going dark side or not. Intel's cutting prices this month too, so there's no reason to spend hastily.

Understandable, but as far as Crossfire goes with the board, its x16/x4, which on PCI-E 2.0 gives you roughly the same crossfire performance as a split x8/x8, if not more.

And from what ive seen its OC'ing ability isnt that bad for a 770 chipset.

357Mhz CPU frequency bus! Very Nice.

i see so
770 = 1 PCI-express lane
770X = 2 PCi-express lanes but maxium of 2 PCI-express slots
770FX = 2 PCI-express lanes but maximum of 4 PCI-express slots

right?

Close.

770 is the basic motherboard AMD offer. Most examples you'll find of this chipset will have only one x16 PCI-E 2.0 slot. The abit one I mentioned earlier has been 'tweaked' a little.

790X is next. This has usually 2 PCI-E 2.0 slots which split into x8/x8 when you start crossfiring. It is also supposed to offer higher degree's of performance and tuning than 770.

790FX is your big kahuna. Between 3/4 PCI-E 2.0 slots, with many different lane configs depending on the board, but with standard CF you'll get full x16/x16. 790FX as a rule of thumb also offers much higher quality power management circuits for more powerful processors like the 9850 and 9950.

I cancelled my subscription with them after I found out the reviewers for that mag are Muppets.

They purposely reviewed the 3870X2 with beta drivers long after the Catalyst 8.3's were out, and tried to claim the card was bad because of it.

The Phenom x3 will and can come very close the E8400 in most games when both are at stock. And yes, the X3 has one extra core, but please, bear a thought for the 600Mhz speed difference.

This has it matching the E8500
