everyones 2 cents on a new AMD build - Page 3

post #21 of 25
Yeah, OCZ's DDR2 was great. Even DDR2 OCZ Gold was actually pretty good, recently I owned a 1066Mhz 5-6-6 kit that could do 5-5-5 no problem and it was OCZ gold.

well i have the crosshair IV and corsair vengence in the mail and the 955 sitting on my desk. also got another hd for raid 0. one thorn is that i found the 965 online for only 7$ more so im debating on whether to get that instead and im leaning towards yes.

thanks guys for your help

That's only Gigabyte that is shipping boards with black sockets to denote AM3+ capability. Asus and MSI both expect their 890 and possibly 880 chipset boards to be able to use a Bulldozer with a bios update.

You should be satisfied with what you already have... bulldozer comes out later this year. I am just a frugal buyer.
