DFI boards, other options, and still cant choose ram!

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I want a new mobo for my 3700+ and my x1800xt... I CANT DECIDE!

Everyone says DFI, but whats the point of haveing SLi with an ati card? Am i wrong in thinking that the extra slot will never be used?

Also, I can;t choose good ram to overclock my 3700+. which is the best for you guys?

Get the DFI Crossfire board, that should do you well.

And for the RAM, try the G.Skill DDR500 HZ 2 GB kit. $157 plus shipping at NewEgg.

Sweet. I'm gonna get some after my upgrade list is complete or almost complete... so it'll be a while. Ahh well, 1 Gig of BH-5 should hold me over if I can find a motherboard that will let pump that much voltage into them... I'm not ready for a DFI yet.

I have heard very good things from the crossfireboads as well. They can also handle the voltage you want for bh-5.

not trying to jack this thread but, does crossfire mean that you can run two graphics cards together?
