New MOBO advice.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I'm purchasing a new motherboard. Also purchasing a new CPU... I would like a new mobo that supports the latest AMD cpu's and crossfire setups, which of course has plenty of overclocking options. Whats my best bet?

I currently have 2 ati 4870's to run in crossfire on the new board i purchase, but im going to be upgrading to a 6 series card soon after.

Woah, woah, slow down there. Before you purchase, just be sure you don't overclock that 1090T too hard. A lot of people have blown up their MSI boards already.

You should check this thread for guides.

http://www.overclock.net/amd-motherb...hase-list.html

I'd like to help you, but I need to know a few things from you:

1) What's your budget?
2) What's your plan setup? (Ex. I want to run 3 5850's, watercooling, 16GB of RAM, etc).
3) Once you figure those out, it will be much easier to get help.

Sorry couldn't answer it soon enough.

Haha thanks anyways. and not planning on ocing it for a while, and when i do not by much. So don't worry. Ive already blown up boards in the past and damaged this past one... Not going to happen again. I'm cautious now.
