|I have a Gigabyte GA-EX58 Extreme motherboard I won in an online contest. I finally am getting around to building a computer in which I planned to use it. In buying parts for the build I made the mistake of accepting a store tech "expert's" word that Corsair CMX8GX3M2A1333C9 RAM was the correct product. I purchased 3 packages of 2 4GB RAM for a total of 24GB. I made the mistake of opening the packages during the build. I only discovered the so-called expert didn't read his data correctly or the data was wrong when I got an error code when I fired it up. Now I am stuck with RAM I can't use. Considering the cost of the RAM it occurred to me that maybe getting a motherboard that would accept the RAM might be better than buying yet more RAM.|
I cannot seem to find any facility that allows me to cross reference motherboards to RAM. Does such a thing exist?
I do pretty heavy graphics work and would like a board that has USB 3.0 and SATA 600 G/bits/s capabilities. I also purchased an Intel i7-950 processors so it needs to accept that as well.
Can anyone give me an idea where I could find a cross reference chart or some direction on a motherboard that might fit my needs?
Thanks in advance.
