my friend wants me to build him a new pc and im due an upgrade too. Im on a tight budget but im trying to make his a conroe system. is the asrock the only cheap conroe motherboard?http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatalog/Asrock.html its a crossfire board will it still run a 7600gt ok? no performance loss becuase its an nvidia card? ati dont have anything for £125 that beats the 7600gt. am2/intel boards have 24pin psu connectors. Is it ok to use a 20 to 24 pin convertor cable on these ? will it still work ok? He wants the silentium t2 case which only has a 20 pin psu connector. whats the default multiplier x fsb on the e6300? will i be able to overclock the fsb if i get ddr2 667 ram? and if so whats the likely fsb increase i could get on air with no volt mods. if anyone can help i would be very gratefull!
