Yeah I know I linked new egg. But at least now you know what CPU heat sink I m talking about.
ive already got a true 120 and tx-2 paste atm. i just need a recommendation for a mobo on gamedude.com.au thats not over 120. seems that most of the good mobo are more expensive.

i could also go with the 5200+ on umart.com.au which is $85 alos, but all their 780g mobo's are mATX.

Black edition has unlocked multiplyers which make overclocking a lot easier so if AMD go 5000+ BE. I do still recommend Intel e2180 though.

Hes not coming. He has been captured by imperial storm troopers while trying to help the rebel scum. When he was captured he was found carrying this Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-MA790X-DS4 AM2+/AM2 AMD 790X ATX Ultra Durable II AMD Motherboard - AMD Motherboards

(yeah that is a board thats been recommended before but I'm sure theres some cheaper ones that are good to)


5000+BE is a good chip but I wouldn't worry to much about learning amd. A couple settings when overclocking is about the only thing to learn that would actually impact performance.

haHA! I am slowly turning the tides for AMD!

But in all seriousness, look for an asus M2N board. I have built 3 systems with them now, the most recent being a M2N-E (89.99 retail) and they are just exceptional. As always though, gigabyte boards are great too, and the one dario suggested is no exception.

Brother, so you have a brother. If you won't turn to the darkside then perhaps he will!



Like I said good cooler and mobo should take a 2180 far, at least far enough to beat a 5000+. I'm confident mine could go a bit higher but the mobo doesn't really want to.

I've been checking out houses and/or studying for my permit test today

But you should consider learning the ways of the AMD overclocking before going Nehalem

His going to be overclocking his CPU 1.2ghz above stock for every day use. As opposed to a .6ghz overclock. His really going to be stressing that CPU.
