Upgrade My Mobo

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Ok so i just ordered another 8800 GTS from another member and i "have" to get new parts for SLI. No im serious my M4N78 PRO only has 1 PCI-e. So i want to keep it under $250 for CPU, MOBO, & RAM. I need some suggestions.
Right now i have this:
  • ASRock 880G EXTREME3 AM3- $110
  • AMD Phenom II X2 545 Callisto 3.0GHz OEM - $76
  • Kingston HyperX 4GB DDR3 1333 - $62
Could it be better?
If you think i could buy anything from the For Sale section point me in the direction of the URL
EDIT!!: SLI hack will be used if i cannot find a NVIDIA chipset board.

That motherboard only supports Crossfire, not SLI.

Uhhh
Sir
Why are you paying $62 for 1333Mhz RAM
*Prepares to slap you in the face*
*But in light of making things right I'm not going to do that and I'm going to help you out by suggesting something better*:
What Badwrench said

Well, my work is done here, but you may also like these RAM choices:
GeIL Value 1600 CL9 (if you can't afford rebates): $42 shipped
OCZ Special Ops 1600 CL8: $45 shipped [Apparently tightened to 6-8-6 for some people]
