Can someone suggest a mobo which would be good to overclock. I have got to 4.05ghz (into windows, didnt test prime, can prime @ 4.02 stable so far)

I am using a 775 chipset,

I believe most you guys are using ASUS, I have a gigabyte which is okay to overclock, however issues;

no manual vcore setting, I have cpu +5, +7.5 & +10% which is annoying.. and only DRAM +.1v

I use an AGP card. I am not buying a PCI-e one just yet. This will probably be the limiting factor in my mobo choice
I was thinking of selling it but I dont know if I'll get my money back it's not very old.

I only have DDR400 RAM but I would say DDR533 or 667 would be the way to go. I could sell my current stuff pretty easily, it's not much different price wise I've noticed - I wish I knew I coulda just stuck it str8 into my current mobo, oh well, sometimes we learn the hard way
Dual Channel would be a MUST. (currently running single, eurgh..)

I run a SATA drive. I would prefer a non-648FX chipset as I have had HUGE problems getting this drive to work properly in single raid mode (unless it doesnt work that way....?) and once I install the drivers for the raid card, only a format of windows will fix it.


* I have heard of agp-pci-e converters (albatron apparently make one) but have heard mixed opinions, feel free to throw your two cents worth in about these but I have a feeling I know what the answers will be..

Please suggest any mobo that will fit my current specs (with as much future room to upg. as possible, forking out on a mobo i never see as a waste of $$) which will let me have more manual control over my OC'ing.. thanks!!

yeah but he said he has an agp card, soo if he did buy that he would be spending at least $450 for a mobo and a good graphic card.

try selling that AGP graphic card on ebay, if you can get something out of it I would definatly go for the P5WD2-E. if not try the ones I listed in my last post

thanks for that

no, I am not going to get a pci-e graphics card, i've just spend AU$500~ on this agp one and to be honest, if you read about graphics card bandwidth you will realise we are barely using agp 4x capabilities, pci-e just has a lot more bandwidth that we can't use.. so I dont think you 'need' an pci-e card unless you want crossfire or sli, which is something I will consider a year down the track if I'm still gaming like I am now..

Steve i've responded to your post selling that mobo it's perfect i think, just want to double check my specs and make sure I aint gunna have any compatibiliti issues

it's this mobo yeah?
