Looking for a good motherboard

  Ben-1626395 21:46 20 Oct 2010

Hey, I am looking to build a new computer, I have chosen everything accept the mother board. I am getting a AMD phenom II x4 955, 8gb 1066mhz dominator DDR2 RAM and 2 XFX radeon HD 5770 single slot graphics cards.
Could anyone suggest a motherboard for me? Must support 1066mhz ddr2, have 2 PCI-E x16 slots and support crossfire and have AM3 CPU support thanks!

I think that most AM3 motherboards supported DDR3 and not DDR2 so you might have difficulty finding one, but many of the earlier AM2+ motherboards also supported AM3 and they had DDR2 support. You might want to look at the Gigabyte range, they are good quality.

Press Man, good board, but unfortunately it has only DDR3 RAM support. todders specified: 'Must support 1066mhz ddr2'.

chub_tor's reply is along the right lines.

Motherboards based on the AMD 790FX & 790GX chipsets will most likely have what todders needs. E.g. Asus M4A78-E click here & Asus M4A79 Deluxe click here. G

You want a mobo that will do the business just go for Gigabyte brand

Go to their website and type in what you want

Never had one go wrong. Not the cheapest but so what?
