*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

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.

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

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.
