AM3 Gaming Board

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
buying a new Mobo in febuary to go with my 955BE
was going to get Corsshair IV formula, however i have heard bad things about the Sata controler delivering poor performance. plus theres only one sata 3Gps an i have two Sata ii hard disks, which is a shame cause its a pretty board.
so i need to find a good am3 gaming board which will be ready for watercooling and some OC'ing but mainly focuse on gaming.
I have £250 (about $391 according to some site) to buy a motherboard and Ram. so i would i like to save some money cause i can put it toward my psu or case.
when finsihed my build will include
Phenom ii 955
6950 CF
4 or 8gb ram not decided yet
HAF X
Rasa 750
XFX 750w Core edition
I already have one 6950, and 955, selling some parts once i got a new case and psu, then i get the £250 for mobo an ram any money saved i can put towards PSU and Case
Thanks for your help OCN

um with my experiences the mobo is the best thing ever! i never had slow drive performance. btw i have a SATA II and SATA I drive all in the SATA III ports. its backwards compatible!

you wont regret ever buy this beastly board! soooo many OCing features!! it supports all my cards fine too.
theres nothing wrong with the SATA ports IMO.
