View Full Version : Looking for dual PCIe x16 LGA775 MBB

02-02-2011, 06:21 PM
So...due to crappy luck, I'm now down another MBB...though, tbh, I wasn't really very happy with the last one to begin with, so oh well...just wish it weren't such an expensive lesson. :dead:

Anyways, I need:
- LGA775
- at least two PCIe x16 slots
- SLI support
- max RAM >= 8GB DDR2
- RAID-0 support (not strictly required, but it would require me to buy a RAID controller as well, so...)
- onboard video would be awesome, but is not necessary.
- at least one PCIe x1 slot would be nice, but not strictly required

I don't want to spend over $100, though the lower the better, of course. Also, if you might consider trade or barter for at least part of the cost, that would be awesome. I have random assorted watercooling parts and fittings, as well as random assorted other hardware. I'm a bit short on funds at the moment, so trade would be really nice if you're willing.

There is a refurb'd EVGA that I'm considering...have to wait till I find out what's wrong with my car (and how expensive the parts will be to fix it) before I commit. I just thought I'd check and see if anyone had anything they wanted to unload. Help us both out.

Is SLI absolutely essential? I ask because I know where I can get an Intel 975X Extreme Edition for about $100 that I would sell to you at cost plus shipping. I don't think that chipset supports SLI, but it fulfills all your other requirements. I'm also very open to trade, just let me know what you've got.

SLI is essential. I just finally got a second GTX260 (and tieton block), and I'm pretty sure I'll need the two working together to beat Crysis 2 into submission. :D

I actually just arranged for an Asus P5N32-E SLI from Indybird, so this is taken care of. Thanks for the offer though. :D
