    Im going to upgrade to DDR3 and im a Butget pocket, so wich Mobo I should get. Having in count the Price Performance relation....

    But I have another option, I have a Athlon II X3@ 2.9, with a ASUS Sailent Square, and use to have it OC to 3.5 on a $75 Asus Board, but i recently bougth the CoolerMaster V8 CPU cooler, and ATI HD 5770, and a 800 watt dont remember the brand PSU.

    Here´s the quiestion. ¿Should I buy one of the Above boards or should I wait a little bit for getting a better one like a Gigabyte870-UD3?

    give some advise... I´ll do what you best recomend.


    Edit 1---What..? im so butget taht nobody will take 1 min to reply.....

    Edit 2---It looks like that jahajaja...

    The Asus M4A78T-E has cooling on the VRM's and the other two dont.

    I'd take the Gigabyte and the wait over those other motherboards.

    But if it has to be now, I'd agree with the above.

    I have a Scythe SCVCH-1000 those are VGA memory intended heatsinks, but I can put some of those on the VRM´s in that case. and due to the fact that you both have Gygabite boards I wil wait for get a UD3 or UD3 in 1 week and a half.
