Can Someone recommend a good motherboard, Based around an Intel core 2 duo E6700 processor, I also intend to get a BFG Geforce 8800 GTS Graphics Card, Jeantech atx 500w psu, PNY 2GB pc2-6400 DDR2 mem, And a Jeantech Aqua butterfly ATX Case, Many thanks in advance.
i broke a motherboard on a pc. i temporarily replaced it with a cheap foxconn £27 motherboard to see if everything else was ok, which it was. i replaced it with a top spec asus and there is absolutley no difference in performance for my set up! i dont really know too much about motherboards and dont use sli. but 3d benchmark etc all give identical readings if tuned by n tune. So next time im sticking with a cheap one. amd 6000x2 2gb 6400 8800 gtx xp pro
thanks for that i did wonder! i must have got lucky i guess. the cpu is/was slightly overclocked and the temps (for motherboard) are in the late 30c area on both boards. the connectors also seemed sturdier on the cheap board.
I have decided to get an Intel core 2 duo E6850 processor, Gigabyte GA P35c-DS3R Motherboard, Corsair 2x1Gb xms6400 DDR2 memory, Hiper 580 Watt psu, BFG GE-Force 8600 GTS Graphics Card, Samsung sata2 320GB HD, Samsung 18xDVD RW, Jeantech Aqua case, And a floppy drive, I also want to install Vista premium on this setup would an OEM version be OK As it is a lot cheaper,
My new PC is based around an Intel Core 2 Duo E6850, And Gigabyte P35C-DS3R IP35 Express Motherboard, That has just irrived, My preferred OS is Vista home premium 32 bit, Do you see any problems that may arise with the installation, Of Sata 2 drive etc, And can you recommend a nice looking case for around £60, with fans,and or removable mother board tray.
