[PROJECT] First Time Build! - Page 2

post #11 of 26
I would go with this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128381 the GIGABYTE GA-MA790X-UD4, it was just released(purchasable on newegg 2 days ago) It's going to have great overclock ability and it's ultra durable 3, I'm getting one next week with a phenom 2 and antec 1200 case.

It's just like a 790fx board without the 16x16 CF capability and overclocks the same if not better since it has Ultra Durable 3 it can push pretty good volts(1.6) if you have the cooling.

the thread we have been talking in about the new UD3 board.

At $114 it's a steal, Good luck with your build!

Quite a few am2+ boards are AM3 socket ready with a bios update. There currently are no true AM3/DDR3 motherboards available as well as no AM3 socket cpus available for purchase. Soon though. Maybe within the week. Getting an AM3 socket over the current Phenom II 940/920 will give an advantage that it can be used in AM3/DDR3 AM3/DDR2 and AM2+/DDR2 Motherboards. We will see what is to come later this week when the new AM3 sockets go on sale. Asus and gigabyte have already unveiled their AM3/DDR3 boards so those should follow soon. Should be a good week for AMD!

Painting is a great way to spruce up a case. Specially when you do the unfinished inside. Not that hard to do either with just a rattle can. While you are at it you can drill some holes to improve cable management a little. Other then that looks great but how does it run?? any gaming yet?

My Painted case. Not perfect but my next one will be better.

Absolutely i'm excited.. The foxconn motherboard I ordered is AM3 ready but only ddr2 capable which is fine for now as I probably won't update to an AM3 untill I need a new motherboard anyways.. perhaps a phenom ii somewhere down the line soon!
