Best LGA 775 motherboard money can buy - Page 2

post #11 of 19
The best money can buy will be used on ebay.

EP45 UD3P

Are you talking about putting that Pent D on it? Don't waste your money, save for SB, or just throw an AMD Phenom II X4 together.

Well the Q9650, EP45-UD3P combo is still kickin butt in any game that I play. It's the HD5770 that needs a little helping hand to obtain "Max Settings" status in a few games.

What's that supposed to mean?

In fact I'll say it again.
It's a BIG WASTE OF MONEY to even TRY to buy a P45 UD3P complete system NEW. Or even USED. Unless you have all the parts already, except the board. If you don't have the board or CPU, Buy a P67 and a 2500k. Because everyone is overcharging for it...you're paying more for used boards than MSRP.
You could pay the SAME PRICE and get a complete 2500k system!

So why the middle finger?
And before you even try to cuss at me, I owned TWO QX9650's. TWO. There's a good reason why I sold them both on ebay....

Save and buy either:

1) Ivy Bridge setup when it comes out

2) Bulldozer setup when it comes out

3) 1155-i5 2500k setup before the previous two mentioned are released!

If it were me and I had the money coming in the next month or so...I'd go with #3

Motherboard right HERE.....CPU right HERE

Yeah I wish people wouldn't make such smartass replies like they did, especially when they know absolutely nothing about my life or what I even did.
Before I was forced into the SB upgrade, I "tried" to stay on the 775 bandwagon by trying to buy a new UD3P to replace my almost dead p5wdh, and it was an emergency. End result was, I was winning an auction with my high bid being $200, for a new unopened 1.6 UD3P (no warranty, no returns), and in the last 30 seconds of the auction, some desperate fool OUTBIDS me. And I didn't even notice it until the auction ended. End selling price for that board was $202.75. MSRP was $150.

Now, you tell me why any fool would pay that much money for a board, that, although unopened, MIGHT be completely DOA, and you can't return it, either! When THIS: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128478&Tpk=p67a-ud4 goes for $190 new, WITH warranty! And 2500k's are $100 CHEAPER than Q9650's!

What's worse, I saw a USED board go for over $200, also, and I even contacted the seller before the price went that high, and he told me a couple of pins were bent.

So, yeah. A fool and his money are soon parted.

There's absolutely NO reason why anyone should consider getting a new system with these parts, unless they already have everything EXCEPT the board. Using spare parts to make a nice powerful backup system is cool to have, but there's no point when a new UD3P and new Q9650 costs over $100 MORE than a NEW P67a-UD4 plus a 2500k. And a used Q9650 is as much as a 2500k. And used parts are like playing Darwin award Lottery. Before I get flamed again, the author of the famous xtremesystems P5Q Mbioses (Great bioses btw) had to buy a used UD3P from ebay, from a seller with 100% feedback, and that board had two bad RAM slots! And when Ket contacted the seller, he got ignored.

I know how some people loved the UD3P and it was one of the best motherboards ever made, rivaling the famous old Abit BH6 (and even that was superceded by the Bh6 1.1's stronger AGP 2x signaling and ability to run 150 FSB with sidebanding disabled). But time waits for no man. Ud3P+Q9600's are still a capable system to wait for socket 2011, but unless you can get a good deal on a FULLY WORKING guaranteed P45 board now, and have all the other parts already, it's not worth taking the chance on getting screwed, or throwing away money best spent elsewhere.

Still want to play roulette? Fine by me.....but it's not my money! kungfu.gif

I rest my case.

Yeah, I was going to say the same. Given the CPU you have, you'll gain little with a motherboard upgrade to justify the cost, especially if you aim for "the best" which will be expensive. Save for a new motherboard/CPU/RAM.

Now they seem to be selling for as much as $200 *USED* at times on ebay, and easily over $200 for a rare new one.

Only worth it if you already have a Q9650 and are content with having a backup system to beat around.
Yup!
I sold an EP45 UD3P for £118 + shipping in the UK a few weeks ago (Used) Also sold an ASUS P5Q-PRO for £65 + shipping recently.

I saw an asus p5q pro turbo brand new sell for 300.00 on ebay,and a qx9770 for 500.00.

I had a DFI UT-P45 T2RS and I had much more success overclocking my q9650 than I did with my ud3p.
