I am Upgrading my system soon here either this month or closer to Christmas for some deals.
keep in mind
It is used mostly for Gaming. World of warcraft. so nothing to intense (but i would like to play it on high settings), and also web browsing,. I would also like it to last for some time. and not have to upgrade The MOBO for a while.
Here is my Upgrade plans as of now.
Newegg.com - AMD Athlon II X4 630 Propus 2.8GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM3 95W Quad-Core Processor ADX630WFGIBOX
Newegg.com - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL
Newegg.com - Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 1-Pack for System Builders - Operating Systems
In case you missed it.. No Motherboard was posted.
I don't know a lot about motherboards. So here is where you guys come in.
-- I would like it to be around $150.00.
-- Idk if i want to crossfire so lets just say 2 PCI-E 2.0
-- i want it to be able to last a while.
- What mobo should i get? All suggestions within my criteria is appreciated
- How big is the difference between crossfire (16,16) compared to (8,8)?
- I also don't know what Nb to go with? the 7s or 8s? 7s are cheaper but 8s are
- Phenom II X2? or Athlon II X4? what would better benefit me?
