He does want a single card (4890) and ddr3 offers no significant performance increase vs ddr2. All AM3 cpu's will work with am2+.





You can get 8gb of ddr2 (without enormous, unnecessary heatspreaders too!) for the price of those ddr3 modules the OP listed.

Hmm yes I see what you're saying, but I want my motherboard to be SLI/Crossfire compatible and I also kind of want it to be a little bit future proof with DDR3.

Edit: Looks like your card choice doesn't have free shipping, so the Vapor wouldn't even cost you more
Yeah I know what you mean and I was planning on getting this but Newegg ran out of them And the only worry I have with Sapphire is that I hear they have really bad RMA support and customer service, and I have the most terrible luck with stuff breaking on me

Murderous Moppet is wrong there is a Xigmatek Dark Knight (S1283) with out the kit and a Xigmatek Dark Knight (S1283V) with the kit!

The one with the V is the more expensive one with the Intel kit. they are both real DK's.

This is somewhat of a last minute thing, but the M4A78T-E has two PCI-e slots which go into 8x when in CrossFire, and the M4A79T has 4 PCI-e slots which when in CrossFire, the two go into 16x mode each. If I plan on getting another 4890 soon, should I go for the latter motherboard, or does it really matter?
