I'm looking into starting to upgrade my computer (god knows it's about time), and I've chosen a processor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103692 Seems pretty solid, especially looking at those reviews, but this is the only motherboard I found that properly suited what I wanted: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130223 Now, I've never heard anything bad about MSI, but I've never used them. This seems like a great board, I just wanna kno if anyone here has anything to put in about it. I went with the 4 PCI-Ex16 slots because from what I found only thos with 4 slots can do dual-16x, the boards with only 2 slots can only do single-16x or dual-8x. I hope to eventually put in some nicer graphics cards and SLI them, so I wanted to dual-16x. I also had a question, I should know this but I've been out of the picture for a while and haven't been able to keep up. It says that the memory standard is DDR3, I have 8GB of DDR2 RAM...would I be able to put that in and still use it? I really hope it can, I dont want to have to spend even more money for new RAM, so if I can't use my old RAM, is there another mobo someone could recommend to me that still can do dual-16x PCI-E and can support DDR2 RAM. Thanks guys! EDIT: If I do have to buy nw RAM, how is this stuff: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145261 It says that it's perfect for the core i5 and i7, but I'm getting an AMD CPU and mobo, I'm sure this would still work, but would it have problems?
