Mainboard and cpu upgrade help!

Postby slash » Sat Oct 30, 2010 1:38 am

1. ASUS M4A78T-E AM3 AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

2. AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor HDZ965FBGMBOX

What say you with this combo @ Newegg over my 2.8 Athlon fx62 Dual core?

Any suggestions on ram welcome.

Thanks guys!

$250 + ram approx. $100 for an all together cheap upgrade...

I would look at getting an 890FX board if the budget would allow for future BD upgrade.

It may be a crap shoot on which one to get that will support BD. One of the top boards from MSI or ASUS might make the muster.

Heck, even bigdroo's Asrock may support BD.
