thnx pilch, but is there a noticable difference to my pcchips mobo, apart from the obvious ddr and higher chip spec. would it be worth me spending a little more money. i do lot of digital filmaking and photo's and all that, aswell as games. can you suggest a more suitable mobo. what is raid and is it worth concidering?
PC Chips (although now part of Elite) never had a particularly good reputation, especially with its bus speeds fiasco.
In contrast, Elite is the third oldest mobo manufacturer in the world and is renowned for keenly priced and very stable boards; it also produces other manufacturers' low cost boards on a rebadged basis.
My Elite P6BXT-A+ Slot1/Socket 370 board was acquired four years ago and has never missed a beat over that time whilst housing a slightly overclocked Celeron 400MHz processor.
hi all lots of choices cant make my mind up,my prescent old setup still compises of a celeron 333 on an pc-chips mb,193m ram,13gighd and an 14"svga screen all around 6/8 yrs old.I use the net an awfull lot and wonder weather a upgrade is in order and give this old but reliable setup to my 13 yr old.Maybe try to build somthing or go into hock and be guided by the reviews within this site etc,or to upgrade to telewest broadband at around an extra £12/13 pounds per month.imm spoiled for choice, Cash is a factor maybe a barebones kit etc from aria/dabs. cant make my mind up any thoughts
