    *edit*- Found a 790FX board at a good price. Thanks



    Looking for a decent AM3 board.

    ASrock 880g extreme3 for around $90 or so would be my top choice.

    Requirements....please do not bother posting or PM'ing if your board does not have these ''must's''-

    Must have atleast 2 PCIe x16 slots (x4 or x8 speed doesn't matter as long as it has 2 slots not counting x1 slots)
    Must be full ATX, not interested in any micro boards at this time
    Must use an 8 pin plug for the CPU power (meaning no 4 pin boards)
    Prefer 90 degree angle sata ports
    USB3/sata 6gb is a plus
    Prefer atleast the I/O shield with the board, but not a must.

    Strongly prefer either asrock or gigabyte, any other brand would have to be pretty cheap to convince me to buy. MSI would probably be my third choice, a distant third.

    Post or PM me what you have with a price shipped to 17025. Thanks

    Would a Crosshair IV Formula be too much of a board for ya?

    Yeah, I wasn't looking to spend more than $110 or so. Thanks though, sweet board.

    Saw on OCN that you're looking for CPUs as well? Might go a different route soon and I'll be listing my 1090T if you're interested. Again, a little pricey, but thought I'd ask and bump.

    I just picked up a 1055t and a 560 BE, thanks though. Still looking for a decent clocking 955 BE though.

    AM3+ is round the corner. Can you wait 1 month ?

    Cheers

    This isn't for my main rig, this is for some LN2 benching fun.

    I have a 955 non-BE if you're interested. Never tried to OC it. Guessing no, though :p

    Nah, can't get high enough on LN2 on that chip to be worth it. The 1055t was a trade deal, thats the only reason I got that.
