post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
okay I just finished my 478 socket rig. and i am looking into starting an AMD rig for oc'ing i found a nice set of OCZ 1GBx2 pc2-5400 DDR2 DIMM for $241 but was unable too find an AMD compatible motherboard too house the ram.
I want too eventually get a 4200+ Manchester or higher 939 chipset on the mobo so what would be a good mobo for around $250 that can handle bothe the ram specs and the processor specs?

Apparently the G.SKILL Extreme is pretty good stuff. I have heard nothing but good about it, and am getting ready to order some for myself.

G.SKILL Extreme Series 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM Unbuffered DDR 500 (PC 4000)

not sure, haven't gotten it yet

Someone else who owns it is bound to know.
