Budget Overclocking boards? - Page 2

post #11 of 89
975x was the enthusiast board of its time, it generally maxed out @ 400FSB.

p31 is not too bad of an option if your on a tighter budget.

its the same chipset, with a crippled south bridge so you'll have less USB's, sata ports than the gigabyte p35, but overclocks like a champ.

Not to my knowledge no. What I meant was in a few months save your cash and get another 160sata to match the one you have. I notice a difference in RAID0 and no RAID at all. Games load faster and file transfer faster, windows even loads a bit faster. I think RAID0 is that way to go but thats just MHO.

Agreed if you are just looking for a pretty good MB and seriously picky about the chipset then look into those. I had an P965 Abit AB9 QuadGT that hit 500FSB pretty easy. It was also insanely FAST because it ran on the 1066 NB strap. Most MB switch the the 1333 NB strap and loosen the latencies compared to the 1066. It was very fast as I said so you might want to look into that as well.

What is your goal with this build I mean is it your last upgrade for the next two years, or are you just looking for a fast upgrade till tax season? I usually build a new rig every other years with my income tax money so my upgrade are far and few between but effective. When I am building a rig I try to ask will it be functional and upgradable for the next two years.

That G31 board is a mATX form factor. Assuming you have a standard full size or mid-size case, I would go for a ATX mobo. mATX is primarily are for people on super small budgets or for Small Form Factor builds.

I say go for the P31.
