Searching for a perfect motherboard

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
at least.. for my situation.

well im wondering if theres any boards out there still that support:

1. AM3
2. DDR2
3. Crossfire

ide really like to find a board that supports all these things if not guess its time to enter the realm of ddr3.

I am running this board with this ram, only $100 not too much of a dent in the wallet.
And new ram isn't too expensive depending on the cas and speed you want.

All amd boards support crossfire nowdays but the issue is with the AM3 socket DDR3 is the majority supported, and the AM3 boards supporting DDR2 are pretty basic and dodgy. Upgrade to DDR3 its worth it in both the added speed and better overclocking headroom it provides. Also chances are that when you upgrade down the track youll need DDR3 ram anyway

1. not safely (very cheap 4+1 power phase)
2. not too good a RAM choice (too generic; a mainstream performanec 1600 CL9 kit can be had at lower prices tan that)

Your best choice would be to find a used AM2+ board such as GA-MA790X-UD4P.
