|Having sorted out my parents' rebuild, I can now focus on my own.|
I would ideally like to have a full speed Crossfire board - i.e. 2 PCI-Ex16 so that in the future I can upgrade to a Crossfire setup. Having browsed around, I've come up with the following motherboards:
Asrock 990FX Extreme3
I reckon that any of these should be OK, but the Biostar only seems to have a 4+1 power regulator.
As far as CPUs are concerned, I'm trying to decide between four:
Phenom II x4 965 Black Edition
I can get a Phenom II x4 965 for under £80 and I know it's a good processor but what I don't know is how it compares to the new Piledriver FX series chips, in particular the fx-6300 which is what I've just put in my folks' machine.
Any advice/suggestions would be useful and very appreciated.
Thanks in advance
