Going i7...need upgrade on some components! - Page 2

post #11 of 29
Are you looking at the standard EVGA board or the classified, if it's the latter then stick with it otherwise look at the Rampage II extreme or the Foxconn bloodrage.

I second the bump up for the PSU.

no not the classified...i find it really hard to shell out $450+ on a mobo alone...

so your saying to go with the R2E or the bloodrage then right?

if possible where can i get a R2E for less than $300?

Great choice for Mobo since your going to SLI some sexy GFX cards, As for ram i've been reading alot about the 2x3gb OCZ Blade packs, they seem to overclock really nicely..
