I just got $800 dollars and I am planning on spending $400 on water cooling.. I still can buy something for $200-$300, so I was thinking of getting a new motherboard. Which motherboard would you recommend thats around $200-$275?
Well, I can't do SLI on my current motherboard because all my PCI and PCI-E slots are dead.. Only the very top PCI-E slot works, so SLI is not an option on my motherboard.. Another option I was thinking about was to get two 9800GTX's in SLI and a new mobo with my $800, meaning that I would ditch my watercooling... is this a good idea? I still have enough extra hardware lying around to cool my CPU, but then that would mean I wouldn't be able to watercool the chipset and the GFX.Is your present motherboard giving you problems somehow? Is so, how exactly? I'm not sure I'd advocate switching to a newer motherboard if the current one is causing you zero problems.
