post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Well as you might know, I am planing to upgrade to the things in my sig and taking whats not listed from my old comp to complet my new rig, but as you might now, Those things coast alot. So if i am unable to come up with the founds im going to have to go another route. Today i got my hands on a free socket LGA 775 2.8gHz proc. I need a seconed up grade route an i was thinking of going with that proc, same ram in sig, 7800GT, same HD, but i am unsure about the mother board, and thats were I am asking for your guys help. I am planing to OC And the mother board needs to be SLI, Do they make a mobo with N4 chip set (SLI) for intel,duno about that.

I don't think that the 3700 and DFI motherboard are worth the cost of the upgrade considering that your stuff still isn't outdated. I'd hold onto your cash and at least wait for the next releases. You're just not climbing far enough from your current system for it to be worth it IMO.

The only differeance i see is the Maximum Memory Supported , the heat pipes, and CPU type Not a big deal. Should i pay the extra cash and get the 230 dallor one or go with the cheaper version.

Edit: I will be updating at christmas time.

By they way. Will the memory in my sig update work with that ASUS board.
