To add to emosun’s excellent advice. Well, that’s just with the new Core i7. User Name Remember Me? Posting your PC specs will help us to assist you quicker and effectively. Should i stick with an ati GX chipset and not migrate towards a possible calamity by buying a mobo with nForce a? Both Intel and AMD are equally victim to this.

It’s not Intel saying “eff you” to nVidia.

More revisions do not equal a better product. The Green Mountain State Posts: It’s not quantity, it’s quality. If anything, it’s nVidia saying “eff you” to Intel, or their fans; depends on you look at it. Originally Posted by Tyree.

The AsRock A does that. That’s all for now!

Antec is not a recommended brand and 980q earthwatts isn’t good enough for the card. It looks like I’m really not needed on this forum with bt covering for me. Virus Problem, Please Help.

A corsair would be much better. Not to mention that it does not, in any way, need anything more than X58, because X58 has everything.

Comparison of Nvidia nForce chipsets

The company published the product page on its website, and has pictured its reference design motherboard based on the chipset. The nForce a SLI and nForce chips 9980a located adjacent to each other, and are cooled actively by a fan-heatsink.


ASRock also happens to be the company that used older Intel chipsets to support relatively new CPUs which other manufacturers didn’t.

It most likely won’t, except for that ASRock nForce 3 motherboard. Phenom II X4 or maybe The time now is I don’t know how they keep the motherboard prices reasonable but it works. So how is this any different? User Name Remember Me? That earthwatts won’t due.

As btarunr so eloquently said, the 6x0i chipset was simply outdated and was not meant to run Quads at all. I trhink it would be really cool if they came out with an AMD board that allowed the end user to be able to go with either cross-fire or sli.

The same can also be said for LGA processors and their multiple instances of working on older chipsets. People may have gotten Phenom II to work on older chipsets, but motherboard manufacturers officially don’t list it. How many regular PCI slots do you require? The only difference is that AMD is trying to sneak in backwards compatibility to win over 98a, at loss of performance. Remove Advertisements Sponsored Links.

That doesn’t hurt my argument one bit, which is that you cannot place Phenom II and Core i7 in the same generation, and say that Phenom II offers backwards platform compatibility. And those of us that want some variety not to mention somewhat lower prices brought to us due to some chioset competition look to what AMD has to offer as well.

AMD caught up in performance chipxet i7 as soon as another card was added. It could be “what the market will bare” coming into effect and AMD users demanding lower prices than intel users too. Because 980z is being such a bitch there is just one chipset supporting i7, its not clear whether nvidia will be allowed to make theirs for this Intel platform.
