I'm upgrading my system - and I found all I need except a motherboard. I need one with:
AMD Athlon FX\64 Support
PCI Express Support
Anyone seen or heard of one with these?
Asus a8v-E deluxe
try take a look at those if you haven't checked them out. these were the only ones i could find with the specs..
You sure it supports DDR2 memory? Couldn't find anything about what kind of memory it supports.
i'm happy with my shuttle xpc.. it has an nforce3 board in..
but ddr2 support, i guess no.
i guess that'll be nforce4 then, not?
doh! didn't see that about ddr2! i don't think they have.. they have ddr 400 if that's it..?
dual ddr400 is the max i have..
i'm unsure if there is actually an athlon64 board yet with ddr2 support.. i think the first one from nvidia at least follows in january, if i read that correctly today.. *urgh* yesterday..
According to the Head2Head column of Maximum PC this past issue, where they put the Athlon 64 FX-55 against the P4 3.46 EE, they stated that the FX-55's integrated memory controller is incapable of running DDR2 memory. So even if there are AMD boards with DDR2, you won't be able to use your FX in them. I don't know about previous FX chips, but since DDR2 is a new technology, I doubt they'd support it either.
(AMD won the Head2Head, btw)
