AM2 motherboard recommendations?

Recommended Posts

This is a very budget beginner overclocking rig. I was wondering if anyone can recommend any AM2/AM2+ motherboards that supports ATI crossfire. Only hi-end part in this rig is the ATI Radeon 5970 video card.

Why go for a 5970 (or two in the case of Crossfire), then go with a cheap older socket motherboard? It doesn't make sense.

You might take a look at this:

MSI K9A2-CF v.2

It's fairly cheap at $69.00, but a bit outdated. 790X NB with a 600 SB, and crossfire support (2x8).

OC's well, but with the 600 you won't get the ACC function offered with boards that have the 750 SB, or the 785.

so you can't unlock cores. But if your just learning to OC, It's good to learn the basics on.

The bios has a multitude of OC features, the board uses DDR2 memory, and uses AM2/AM2+ processors.

if you want to take the risk, you might find an open box unit at the Egg at a better price.
