So I helped a buddy of mine out with some stuff I wont go into and his brother thanked me by giving me a 9850 phenom OEM processor....sweet but now I have a problem.
need a motherboard ^-^
I have a 8800GT and will upgrade to a 4870 soon so I wanna make sure no boards block it.
I have around 100 bucks...my PC parts are
4x1gb G-Skill DDR2 800
2x 500GB Seagate HDs SATA
vx750w Corsair PSU
I need a board that can handle CPUs up to 140w also needs 1 IDE since I use 2 old IDE 250GB HDs for storage.
But I was told the AMD 7xx chipset was better.
So what about this board?
I wont be overclocking I don't like to stress my parts...I live in a rather hot area so I gotta use custom cooling just to keep normal temps.
