Re my older now closed post due to family issues I can now pick up and carry on this dilema.Problem. I want to build a new machine with Vista using a Intel CPU & 4 GB memory.My problem is finding a Motherboard which will work with 4GB Memory on Vista.The Machine is mainly used for Daughter to Play the SIMMS 2 & 3 on, Itunes for Ipod, Some Pictures, Broadband, bit of Office 07.I have spent months looking for a combination. I know some cost will be their for this build. Its mainly the motherboard, CPU & Memory and NO Overclocking using Vista Premium 32bit or 64bit if needed.
How about this?Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3LR
Am I missing something here, don't just about all motherboards accept at least 4 gb ram?. Vista 64 would be required.
even though Vista can take 4GB it can only use 3GB. If I am wrong please tell meWill look at that Gigabyte M/b Thanks Clary31
you need vista 64 bit version and it will use as much as you can install.
I was also looking for Crucial DDR800MHz or possibly the next step up memory but could not find any in 4GB Kits, that is 2 DIMMS x 2GB = 4GB'sIs this a Crucial restriction on there memory as I thought they were good a lot of people seem to go Corsair route.
there are many places you can get 2g x 2g kits. as long as its a major brand retail boxed kit it will be ok. I used corsair twinx xms2 800 on my pc.
Am looking at Corsair, have you got any recomendations on motherboards and quiet PSU's, Core 2 Duo or Quad core.Thanks
Gigabyte or Asus brand. Prefer it with Intel Chipset and not nVidia. Don't need Raid, just for 1 single HDD, no Firewire. pleanty of usb's but most have that.
asus p45 boards, many to choose from, user friendly, e7500 cpu would do the tasks you mention easily.
Thanks citadel, Hopefully my local place aria.co.uk or MicroDirect in Manchester have something for me.Will post back when I choose one, will be tomorrow now. Cheers and Thank U!
