Default Motherboard reccomendations?

February 18th, 2012, 03:40
bjon- I was thinking GPU from the 500 Euros model in Gorath's link (XFX Radeon HD 6870 Dual Fan) rather than Radeon HD 6950 from 1000 Euros one. The difference in price (according to the article) is not 50 dollars but 80 Euros or 105 dollars…

That ram would be perfect for a excellent low cost build. I wouldn't go completely cheap with a motherboard but going from a gigabyte UD7 to a UD3 can save a good hundred dollars depending on where you are buying. Feature wise there is almost no difference.

edit: Zahra that would certainly be an acceptable downgrade. A 6870 is more than enough if your not running eyefinity setups or insane resolutions.

Favourite RPGs of all time: Wizardry 6, Ultima 7/7.2, Fallout2, Planescape Torment, Baldurs Gate 2+TOB, Jagged Alliance 2, Ravenloft: The stone prophet, Gothic 2, Realms of Arkania:Blade of destiny and Secret of the Silver Blades.

Yup, screen resolution has a big impact on FPS…

Z, if you're looking at the 6870 an nvidia alternative would be the 560 - similar price and performance.
