My System Specs

Default MSI 870A Fuzion

Hey guys

i couldnt seem to find much on the MSI 870A Fuzion on the forums here

what do you guys think about the board and the lucid hydra chips? basicly looking for a half decent(cheap) am3 board that i can use with my X4 cpu and nvidia cards i have laying around that would work in my folding machine, and would be OC friendly

any thought's or comments?

thanks

yeah my current MB is a bit too old for my x4, it works well but wasn't designed for quads, its limiting the cpu, so i need to change it, and get some ram for it too.

been looking at the ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3, Gigabyte GA-890XA-UD3 or 890GPA-UD3H 890GX, both around 150/140$ atm or going for a cheaper 100$ range board and some ram,

what Ram is best for the GA-870A-UD3?

Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 4GB (2 x 2GB) CL9 Ram work well with the MB?
