Hi Trying to build a 'gaming rig' which will be reasonably future proof, and capable and stable enough to be overclocked like crazy! However EVERY m/b (according to reviews) has it's own particular Achilles heel. I need some seriously deep technical help here, so I'll list some of the m/bs I've considered and some concerns I have. Asus P5W DH Deluxe, P5WDG2 WS Pro and Intel D975XBX (BadAxe). Is 975 chip getting a little long in the tooth ? Asus Commando, 965 chip but o/c potential ? Asus Striker Extreme, BFG/EVGA 680i, very expensive, BIOS problems, and will not take Ati X1950XT which I had rather set my heart on, only the horrendously expenive 8800s. Rather limited as to choice of m/bs, as have put the cart before the horse and bought 2x1Gb of Crucial Ballistix PC1000/8000 RAM. C'mon all you absolute white-hot whizzkids ! I'm sure loads of people would love to know the tastiest m/b and rig you could self-build without spending mega-bucks. cheers Goinape.
