Default Re: need Motherboard / Memory Recommendations

a bit over budget but worth it IMO.
Newegg.com - EVGA E758-A1 3-Way SLI (x16/x16/x8) LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard

if not then in your budget:
Newegg.com - ASUS P6T LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard

ram get the 1600:
Newegg.com - OCZ Gold 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Voltage Desktop Memory Model OCZ3G1600LV6GK

Default Re: need Motherboard / Memory Recommendations

the evga is probably too much for me, wouldn't need 3xsli.
the asus seems to only support DDR3 2000 (O.C) / 1866 (O.C) / 1333- but not 1666 memory sticks though.

that ocz memory looks good though for the price. is corsair a better brand? i hear alot about their memory chips.

Corsair is great but overpriced.

the p6t will run 1600 no problem.

Merged the 2 threads for you as they are about the same system.

True but moving bclk from 133 to 160 requires no vcore bump. Everything can run at stock voltages. Else you need a board that runs a 12x mem multi.
