Best mobo/cpu match for a GTX 280? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Thread Starter 
Appreciate all the help guys, thanks.

And I'm also an intel guy, but I currently cant afford intel parts. They're usually like 20-30 bucks more expensive than comparable AMD products.

Pretty much any dual core from the Core 2 Duo E8XXX line or the Phenom II X2 line would be sufficient. In all honesty, a Phenom II 550 @ 3.8GHz handles a 470 in games pretty well.

Yes, but a quad core will help in many games, much more than a dual core, and can be had for not much more.

(Better mobo with 8+2 phases for better overclock.)

(save some money with a 955.They are both the same)

(better ram for the money. Your dont really need 8GB of ram. It will hinder your chances of a good overclock.)
