im looking at this motherboard to chuck an e8400 in, what are they like and does it have good enough bios options to squeeze a decent amount out of an e8400?

will eventually be running 2 x 9800gtx aswell. thanks.
also im keeping it as cheap as possible so please dont recommend any motherboards over $150 :)

the best thing about buying the nvidia 9800gtx wasnt buying it... it was telling all the ati fanboys that i did!

Well, to run all that new hardware, would be slightly silly in that OLD motherboard :P

650i chipsets are OLD. And they don't overclock well so this means BIG bottleneck. Unless you have bought the 9800GTX's, I'd get an P45 and a single 4870 or something like that. P45's are better overclockers than anything nVidia on the market. You can score a Gigabyte P45-DS3 for roughly $125

Otherwise, I'm not sure if you can get anything SLi board for only $150.

Nowhere near 4.0GHZ IMO.

If you don't need SLI, get an MSI P45 Neo3 FR. It has the eye candy to match your 9800GTX :D

how does a motherboard have eye-candy? if yuo mean it looks nice, thats not a deciding factor for me as i look at my screen not stare into my case.
