So I'm helping out a friend here, hes looking for advice for his mobo choice for his i7.
I've helped build about 5 of my friends new i7's and everyone of them had 1st, 2nd or 3rd tier EVGA boards and they have been wonderful! Very easy to work with yada yada..
Anywho, I found out the hard way that the EVGA boards we were interested in only had 1 true x16 PCI-e slot (
) Very Upsetting!!
So, after much research I came across this board Asus P6T X58
looks like a good board all around, had great reviews for the most part but I'm hung up on thing; the RAM.
Its advertised that it will run DD3 2000/1866 O.C'd but why are they advertising its OC'ability? Does this mean I have to purchase some 1333 and OC it? Or can I just slap a couple sticks of 2000 in there?
Beyond that, if anyone has a mobo suggestion, I'll take it, my only requirements here are: TWO true x16 PCI-e's and if possible one that runs DDR3 2000 (stock?)
Sorry for the dumbassery, this one confused me and I figured I'd consult someone that knows before wasting my friend's monies
