Motherboard Help

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
So my friend wants to upgrade his motherboard. He wants to keep his processor and his ram, but he has just upgraded his graphics card to a EVGA GTX 470.

So, he needs a motherboard that supports an AM2+ processor, at least 4 ports of DDR2 ram, and can support SLI. Cheap would be ideal, but he wants to overclock his processor in the future so something solid that can overclock and SLI and use DDR2 ram. Tall order, I know, but can it be done?

@vrm4: That is the only one my roomie and I could find for him on newegg. He likes it, but was hoping for something in stock. We are keeping an eye on it tho, and thanks for pointing it out.

@laxhockey1563: The MSI looks good, but from reading its specs, it says in the specs that it only has crossfire support. Is that a typo? If so, that one looks real good.

gunsmoney that is AM3 only. I know it is Crossfire, but you can do software SLI now. Works just as well...

I did some research and here's some native SLI ones: *you probably will get better OC's with an AMD chipset+SLI hack though...

NOT SLI but the best chipset: http://www.ewiz.com/detail.php?name=...d542f7823d085c
