Have you ever Noticed

Post by Athlonite » Mon Jun 09, 2008 8:11 am

that when you looking for a new mobo you can find one with some things want on it and somethings you dont like me for instance all i want is an socket AM2+ board with 2-x16 pci-e slots (that work at that with two cards) and six sata 300 ports plus 4 DDR2 dimm slots. dont realy want anything else couldn't give a toss about wireless nics or firewire now do you think i can find one NOOooo ,they either dont have 2x pci-e x16 slots that run as x16 when put two video cards in (ie: 1x16 and [email protected]) or they only have 4 sata ports two less than i need (4 HDD's and sata dvdrw) so if you've seen a board that you may think fits the bill post here and let me know oh and please aware i live in a tinpot country (New Zealand) where the latest and greatest cost hundreds and may or may not be available here yet cheers for now

Ouch, you're pretty much limited since you're in New Zealand. Gotta find vendors that ship internationally (newegg doesnt ship internationally unfortunately) or just get the board with 4 sata and buy a sata pci card for extra devices.
