Biostar on shellshocker next 30minutes.

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
SO, someone help me make a split second desicion, at the wire decision. These bastards at Newegg got me by the balls and now i'm thinking about getting this Biostar Ta880 gu3+ Instead of The 890fxe which i was giong to get http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813138193 <---here.
My most important question is "does the ta880 have am3+ support"
Cause I will most likely want a bulldozer processor, and I imagine they will have lower power ratings so 125w should do it right?

My current cpu is an amd athalon2 255 regor. And thats probably what I'll use for the next year until prices come down on the new amds.

I dunno, I don'ta think imma go with the 880 its just such a good price.... half the price of the fxe on shellshocker and my motherboard now is a proprietary lenovo mobo and argh. I just want something awesome for cheap. Will do a little pc gaming but, i think crossfirex1 is enough.

thats what i gathered from reading lots of posts here. But, I probably won't ever get into heavy overclocking, maybe just very light stuff. Do you think this board is made with the same craftmanship in mind? it's a little cheaper for price, and the fxe is modestly priced too so, i dunno.

Stop talking to yourself
Get that shellshocker board.
You don't need the other one for a dual core Athlon.
Overclock as high as you want
CPU will bottleneck crossfire.
