    I built my rig about a year ago and i have had problems with my current mobo and ram. I get odd lock ups when i run more than 4 gigs of ram in my mother board( i have 2 sticks of 2gig). Well,would like to get a new mobo and ram.I have tried every fix and patch out there but i cannot get it to work properly.

    I need a mobo that can run a core 2 duo chip and has pleanty of pci/pci-e slots since the 2 of the 3 that i have on my current mobo are taken up my my fatty fat fat video card(880ogtx). I am looking to future proof i a little bit so i am looking for a mobo that gets along with 6+gigs of ram, has SLI, and like i said above has pleanty of pci/pci-e slots.

    As for ram anythign decent that gets along with the mobo is fine.I am kinda leaning toward corsair dominator though.

    Thanks in advance.
