Need advice regarding purchase of new Motherboard

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello.


I'm currently in this situation: I am going to buy a GTX 560Ti GPU. I have ATM. the Intel Core2, QUAD 2,33Ghz CPU.
To avoid bottleneck, I'm going to Overclock my CPU. I cannot do this atm. Since I'm using a 650i SLi mobo.
So I searched for a new Motherboard, and found this one: Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3LR


Now my question

Is there a motherboard I can purchase that works better than the Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3LR but cheaper - or slightly more expensive, but much better?

Better: I'm thinking OC wise - I'm aiming for 3Ghz +/- on the Quad 8200 2,33 Ghz. With COOLER MASTER HYPER 212 PLUS as aftermarket cooler.

Also, I'm currently using DDR2 800Mhz ram. Will I need to buy new ones, and if so.. Which?
I read RAM are affected by CPU OC. And as mine are DDR2 and 800mhz, it might be time for an upgrade in the RAM department also?

Help much appreciated!

There aren't very many LGA 775 boards left. If you want something better than P45 try to find an X38 or X48 board. You most likely cannot get these boards new anymore but will have to find it second hand off somebody who is willing to part with it. There are also P35 boards if you're interested in those. As for ram, a 1066 kit will help you a lot in overclocking.

Where are you getting your board from? Can you link to where you are shopping from?

Yes, that is why I asked. I figured you were from a different country because currently in the USA you cannot buy any of these parts new from a majority of retailers. These products are end of life already.

These boards:

http://www.edbpriser.dk/Product/Deta...ard&pid=450893
http://www.edbpriser.dk/Product/Deta...ard&pid=485033

That's the best I can find with search function. I can't read your language so I can't navigate the links properly.
