motherboard suggestions?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok here goes, I have this system as my family pc, ( movies-spiderman-you tube) >>>>>>Please leave all negative comments at the door<<<<<<<<

Core 2 duo E7500-stock cooler- samsung f3 1TB-dell/intell motherboard- 8gb 1066- xfx 650 black psu- antec 600 case.

I am going to upgrade the video in my sig rig today!!! ( whoo hooo)
Need a place to stick my GTS 250,s I cant seem to find a suitable motherboard.( two pci-e slots-775-not to expensive) Any suggestions, i believe my power supply is big enough ,and the e7500 is at stock speed but a tough little cpu. I am stuck deciding on just upgrading the mobo so i can sli, or scrap current cpu and mobo, and throw a I7-950 in and a good mobo.

This system is a great little box.I would just like to put the 250,s to good use. I could always just stick one in, (BUT THAT WOULD BE NO FUN!!)

Would this board work for you? http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...?EdpNo=3536897

Also, you said another option is to scrap your current mobo/chip and get a i7-950. Why not just go to Sandy Bridge?

Well the 950,s are cheep and killers cpu,s. I already have the video so kinda hoping to get by with not spending alot ( getting away with motherboard only)

I saw XFX still makes some good sli boards for the 775 socket. But i was hoping to find something around a hundred bucks. I dont plan on overclocking ( unless im forced to buy a high end mobo)
