hi, i am preparing to build a new gaming system.
i was originally going to buy an XFX 790i Ultra 3-way SLI but it seems to be discontinued, i was finding it at £120 ($185) and it looked like a great mobo and i was going to get a intel core 2 quad 28300 775lga 2.5ghz with it for £85 ($130) but now i can't find that mobo new, only used on ebay. so if anyone can find this mobo for under £150 ($230) new, i will be very greatful
so moving on, i have been looking at the Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R Motherboard which would'nt be my first preferance but scince it is £160 ($250) and the others are 100's more, im slowly turning to that. but if anyone can find the xfx 790i new or one simular to it for under £150 i will be happy
anyway, onto the cpu. the gigabyte is socket LGA1366 and i cant find a decent but cheap cpu for it, im looking at under £100 ($155) i want it to be suitable for gaming and possibly overclocking.
so has anybody got any suggestions?
if you have please reply
