Well 1st post here, Well Iam an AMD fan and ATI, BUT I got a E4300 intel oc/ed to 3.2 (stable) Doing pen mod to it nextweek. anywoot i got a abit ip35 pro mobo, and a 9600gt 2 gigs of mushkin 800 ram. Now here is What i would like . A motherboard that has 2 (or more) pci-e 2.0 slots running @ full speeds (16 x), and that is a good over clocking . Im new to the over clocking. This come up weekend im geting better ram Patriot 1150 ram (i hope to hit 3.6).

Also i was thinking a newer intel cpus. intel e8200 chip is 6 meg and 2.6 ghz. my cpu is 2 meg and 1.8, now the e8400 is nice 3 ghz (cant find tho) and same whit the e8500 3.2 , the E8200 i see oced to 5 ghz fast as i need to be.

OK or the new amd 4 core 9850 black and same 3 SLI. BUT i fear becase im still in 32 bit i wont use the extra 2 cores and that cpu is rated @ 2.5 and oced to 3.2 (this cpu is = to it).

OR i can forget about the sli stuff and get a 9800gx2 black. I got a good job an want to build a lasting pc like last build. amd 3200 and asus k8ne 850xtpe lasted 4 years. still work but i got this rig an works great but no pci-e 2.0 and i hope its not slowing down my 9600gt to much . o thair it is longer then what i wanted to post but owell . :respect: thanks.

wait do you have an E8400 or wait what do you have and want?? are you runnin sli or just want to?? or is it cross fire?? if it's sli you need a 680i/780i I would get an asus branded board if I were you they are fairly easy to oc.

If you have an 9600gt, I would vote get the 750i p7n board from msi, and another 9600gt. They supposedly scale quite well, should handle anything you throw at it for now. Don't waste your money on the gx2. You can get two gts (g92) for cheaper with about the same performance. If you want more room for expansion to stretch the life of the comp more though, get a 780i and 2 9800gtxs, which you can tack on a third too down the road when tri-sli is more valid. Although, that route will have you paying more for slightly less performance in some areas.

Or, if you wanna stick w/ ati, wait until the 4xxx series comes and pair a couple of those (4870 probably) with an x38. Somethin like that anyway, just some ideas.

well...

i love ati but the new line ups dateing back to to 2xxx sucked . i had a 9800 pro and x850xtpe Both great cards but that was then this is now. I got 1 9600gt and Just got http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820220233 and timings of 4-4-4-10 t1 @ 458mhz on my e4300. Just ordered the e8400. But i think pc is lacking in the mobo . only pci-e 16 no 2.0. so if i was to get a new mobo u say the xfx one i heard bad thing about the soldering on it, and i was thinking about the 9800gtx soon. the 9800gx2 cost to much an power is outlandish.

From what I've read PCI-E 2.0 cards are backwards compatible with PCI-E 1.x slots, obviously won't work at full potential, but will work.
