Upgrading

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I'm upgrading to ddr3, so I need a new motherboard and ram (upgrading sig rig).

I would love some opinions on which motherboard and ram set I should get.
I'm on a tight budget of $150 usd total, and need the motherboard to be able to unlock my Ph 720.

Thanks

I was just looking at that same board. Great find rabbit.

Will the ram run well even though its optimized for a P55 platform?

Yes the ram should be fine but why get that mb when u can get one in my sig with a newer chipset that supports. Sata 6 and USB 3.0?

I'm pretty sure that all of my hard drives only support 3gb/s and I don't have anything that uses USB 3.0 and I don't transfer more than a few mb from a flash drive or a few songs through my ipod. Also the asus has crossfire which would be cool. Im planning on getting a 6850 and later might get another if i get a CF board.

It's future proofing. And the 870+ does crossfire also

ur board is 4+1 power phase , which isnt good for unlocked phenom cpu , also its 16x+4x so no CF , sata 6 and usb3 is overrated smile.gif , besides its out of stock and deactivated xD

+rep for both of you guys for the help. Really great informative stuff in this post.

I'll go with the Asus motherboard, but I still need some more opinions on ram. Any specific tech reasons for the choices?
