phenom 9850be needs am2+ mobo+graphics suggestions.

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
i just bought a phenom 9850 BE.

i need some help on picking out a mobo and graphics card now. i plan on buying one card for now. but will invest in a second card in the next month after.

i can go 2 paths in my eyes.

i can go nvidia based graphics and invest in a 750a based board

or

go ati based graphics and invest in a 790 based board.

for graphics...due to the tight budget in the state of our current markets...i was eyeing 2 cards.

for nvidia the 8800gt/9800gt was in my sights. cost is pretty good and supply is everywhere.

for ati i was looking at 2 cards. 3870 and 4830. i was even considering going 2x3850 in cf right away because of the cost.

so guys what do you think? which of the 2 scenarios is the best bang for my buck?

also due to my location in toronto ontario canada. DFI boards are not obtainable here.

Go 790fx with the newer 750 southbridge. The 790gx has the 750 sb chipset but 8x by 8x crossfire bandwidth. I have a phenom with crossfired 3850's and I score 14.700 with cards at small overclock and cpu at 3.0ghz.

ok so the board i have choosen based on what you all reccomend is this one.

http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...697&CatId=3504

790gx and sb750 nice price too compared to spending 125 bucks more for the asus t deluxe for the same features.
how does the 3850 perform to the 4830?

the 4830 proforms close to a 8800gts(g92). to where the 3850/70 proform around the g80 version. 2 4830 beats 1 280 in a lot of games.
the 4830 beats the 3850 by a good margin.
