Good motherboard for Athlon II X3 445? - Page 2

post #11 of 33
Thread Starter 
Most of the motherboard I'm seeing are AMD chipsets, and I have a GT240, and I cant use that with a AMD chipset?

Yes you can. It will run fine, the motherboard chip set doesn't dictate what graphics cards you can use. Any pci-e card should be compatible with a suitable pci-e slot. Besides the only decent chipsets for amd boards these days are amd chipsets. And for fifty quid you can get one of these which would do you nicely.

This isn't too bad although the 8pin CPU power socket is awkwardly placed.

Highly regarded but may be too expensive if you need ram also

http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Compo...roductId=40261

More affordable and decent specs, although not a great overclocker I dont think.

+1 You can use Nvidia card on AMD in single GPU config no problem. SLI is more difficult on AMD chipsets.

Well out of the ones you picked the Asus M4A78LT-M LE would by far be the best choice.

That should be OK. Your CPU will not draw much power so the 4-pin should be acceptable to drive it.

It is better than the other two, however it is limited to 95W CPUs which is fine for yours but if you wished to upgrade later then you would likely need a new mobo.
