Never seen you actually post builds this way before, even I usually only do individual thread suggestions. Great work

Also, ASUS M4A79XTD EVO is cheaper than ever at $89, $74 AR. Haven't seen prices like these on this board for awhile!

Like I said, slow day. Most stuff is blocked at work, but for some reason none of the computer related stuff. (Guessing this is the ITs way of still being able to play while at work). Also, there was almost no one posting, so nothing to talk about.
I am particularly proud of build #2 though, super solid rig for the $$. I almost want to get one of those X4 925s just to see what it will do. . Unfortunately, I need to upgrade my mobo and ram in order to do so.
It's so little!

Aside from the fact that I'm pretty sure the BIOS will support it after an update (I own one of those boards), consider that both the 925 and 450 are 95W @ stock. The 925 as with other AM3 chips can run on AM2+ boards with BIOS updates and the like... heck, your 450 in itself is an AM3 chip.
That said, if you now indeed plan to get that 925, it's



I'll have to agree with build #2. $600-700 seems to be about the best price range for AMD builds at the moment

how does that m4a79xtd evo compare to the m4a88td-v evo?

I'd say it's quite a bit better, if you don't mind the missing SATAIII/USB3. 8x-8x Crossfire, similar VRM phasing, great features, and above all one of the greatest prices for AMD overclocking boards. The newer 880 chipset may enable better overclocking among other features though.
post #7 of 12
reason I am asking is because I am building a new rig and was actually looking at both of those motherboards. Ive been directed more towards the 88 because of the newer chipset and of the extra features. Now, I am not planning on overclocking anything really, except maybe my gpu. which one of those boards would be the better choice? and be more future proof? Im also looking to build something that will last me a good number of years.(preferably close to 5 and up maybe)

nice builds. with a few open box deals they could be even cheaper. i always look for open box first on newegg before i buy anything. especially video cards.

That said, if you now indeed plan to get that 925, it's $5 cheaper individually on Amazon

I know my mobo will run the 925, but I don't just want to run it at stock speeds. I would rather get an 8+1 or 8+2 power phase before I get that chip. A quad core phenom will get much hotter than my OCed triple. I actually need to update my rig below. Should now read 3.6 ghz @ 1.36v. Been playing with voltage drops, but still maintaining a decent OC.
