Anyone have a socket 775 MBoard that takes 16gb ore more of DDR3 they want to trade?
show user profile  HANZZ
I've got to get a mboard that handles more ram for max/ photoshop asap.

Currently have:
intel E7400 2.8 Core 2 Duo at 1033 fsb
GeForce 9400 GT w/2gb
2x2gb DDR2 (just bought 2x8gb DDR3 which won't work on my Asrock G41C-GS 2.0 micro ATX)
650watt Psupply
Standard tower case

Willing to trade this brand new Mboard/2x2gb DDR2 ram and a 3ghz intel cpu (non-duo) for a functional mboard that can handle 16gb or more of DDR3. Let me know!

Just to keep being annoying..
socket 775 mobos with DDR3 are kinda rare, it was only at the end of the great 775 era that they appeared.
considering how old that CPU is, maybe a cheap newish Hasswell/1150 mobo and an Pentium or i3 would be a good option, which would also let you keep your RAM. That can be done for around 120$/100€ in Denmark, and it is probably cheaper in Murica. Also this option would let you upgrade to a i5 or i7 (for the 1150 socket) if you fall over some money later on.

Terribly boring signature.

Hey Hanzz, if your looking for a upgrade on the cheap, look for something like this.

Last month i just built a system for my gf with this one:
Only downside is that it only supports 8gb ram.

With a six core like this:

And you can be done for 250 euro's and use your bought ram :)

Pushing buttons since "86

I did find this on ebay:

It's socket 775 and takes up to 16gb ddr3...

That is still a lot of money for an ass old socket type.

I looked at newegg, which is popular in the USA afaik..

socket 1151 with DDR3 support:
mobo: Gigabyte GA-h110M-s2pv DDR3 : 61$
CPU: Intel Pentium G4400 Dual core 3.3 Ghz : 65$
Newst chipset but with DDR3 support: :126$

Socket 1150
mobo: MSI H81M-P33 :40$
CPU: Intel Pentium G3260 Dual core 3.3Ghz :60$
previous chipset which only ever supported DDR3 :100$

This is what I found without looking around, so it might be possible to get it cheaper elsewhere.
Even the low end motherboards, like I have found here, support up to i7 CPUs, around 4 SATA3 ports for SSD speeds, and a couple of USB3 ports.

Buying the 1151 chipset with DDR3 support is a little Iffy, since only some of the low end mobos support DDR3, so any major upgrade would require RAM as well, but RAM is normaly not the deal breaker when talking about hardware prices.

I know we all work differently, but If I had to remove my mobo, I would probably see about future proofing it a bit, so I wouldn't have to do it again right away.
If you re attepmting to swap motherboard without having to reinstall, then it really depends on the operation system as well.. newer windows versions, are in my oppinon, pretty good at booting up, even after some major changes, but might bitch about licensing, since a mobo change makes it look like a new computer..

The last link I gave is like 66 dollars. That's pretty low.

I already have the socket 775 cpu (intel core 2 duo) and the 2 x 8gb ddr3 ram. I just don't have income presently, so this is all just wishing for now. I was hoping someone might have an old motherboard they'd be willing to trade for, with the outline I mentioned at top, but so far, nada.
