Best board for the D950

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to buy a 950 Pressler when the price drops in April. What is the best board for this chip? I've read many mixed reviews on various boards without a clear cut winner. Any suggestions?

No question


ASUS P5WD2-E-Premium, or the Premium if you're on a budget. But I would recomend saving the cash or finding it for the E-Premium.

That's what I've been leaning toward, thanks.

The 950 won't overclock much more than the 920. Mine as well save your money and get the 920 or 930. You can get the 920/930 to 4.2Ghz on air, and a 950 may go up to 4.3Ghz... Not worth the 2X cost IMO.

In three weeks the 950 will be $316 while the 920 is dropping to $178. I understand what your saying but I won't be running it too overclocked. Maybe I'll just build another machine too. Thanks for the input.
