Cheap AMD upgrade cpu+mobo+memory - Page 2

post #11 of 14
The MSI 880GM-E43 is at a similar price point, but I really don't rather like MSI (they skimp on mosfets). Biostar is a pretty good brand depending on the situation.
Perhaps the ASUS M4A785-M will do, it's only $5 more and fits your budget still while being a full HD chipset with UVD2/Flash 10.1 and AVC playback support. Speaking of the 785G chipset, it overclocks ridiculously (I manage a 50% overclock on stock volts from 500Mhz to 750Mhz )

be better for almost the same price. the 640's are pretty good allrounders.

I normally don't like those combo deals but considering for the same price you get twice the cores I rather like it. The 740G with the Radeon 2100 is a very weak graphics chipset however (graphics-wise at least), I must warn you.

Thanks, but that combo is almost $25 more.

I'll go with ASUS M4A785-M and XMS3 RAM.

Thank you
