Default Re: AMD 790GX ATX motherboards

Are there any major differences between SB710 and SB750?

Which one's better/cooler?

What do you mean already? I've had it for a while.

Anyway, not really sure why it died. Though I suspect it could have been the weaker power regulation (I was using my 940BE at ~1.55V, 3.8GHZ).

The difference is that SB750 has RAID 5 support.

I still stand by my recommendation of any 780g board (especially mine) overclock it to 750mhz Core (makes it equivalent to an HD 3300 in the 790GX's), which is easy as heck in the BIOS, and finally buy this HD 4350 for Hybrid CrossfireX :

Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GV-R435OC-512I Radeon HD 4350 512MB 64-bit GDDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

And you have much better performance than the HD 3200

The 4350 won't work for Hybrid CorssfireX, only a 3450 or a 3470...so basically, a 3470, since newegg doesn't sell 3450's anymore.

I got this one myself to Hybrid with my 790GX, but it seems to be deactivated now.

this is $42 ($32 with rebate).

Newegg.com - WINTEC AMPX 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model 3AXT6400C5-4096K - Desktop Memory

anything below $40 will probably only get you 2gigs.

Do the Jetways hold any oc world records? If not then I would go with the Gigabyte or Biostar which are proven overclockers. I don't see a reason to go with a questionable brand (Jetway) unless it's boards offer clearly superior performance.

Why would you only consider it if it held records? it's a cheap board. It's not going to be the best, but it's still pretty good.
Also, brand doesn't really mean much, when the quality of boards from every brand can vary a lot.

The point of recommending it is that the price of the board is very low for what you get out of it.
