Asus motherboard - compatible graphics + CPU

  GlassJAw82 19:40 08 Feb 2009


i have never posted on here before but feel that i may be able to get some good advice here, so here goes. I have a 2 to 3 year old mesh computer that i use to play games on. it has an asus a8n-sli deluxe motherboard (version 1.xx), AMD athlon 64 3000+ (1.8Ghz) CPU and Sapphire RadeonX700 Pro Graphics card.

I understand that the motherboard is SLI ready, but i would need to use nvidia based cards, so would need to replace my existing one.

can anyone recommend a processor and graphics cards(s) that i can use in this system, prefferably atleast 2.4Ghz and 256Mb respectively.

any feedback greatfully received.

theres some useful stuff in there, but as the original message is over four years old it doesnt cover any new cards or processors. Is there anywhere i can look to check compatability between my 2005 motherboard and newish upgrade hardware?
