  1. I've started a thread in the mobo section, so here is the link: http://forums.overclockersclub.com/?showto...=0entry583944 Thanks!
  2. Okay, I took out the Asus's (or is that Asi in Latin?) so here is the corrected (hopefully) link: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductCompa...&SubCategory=22 Thanks!
  3. Okay, I've rounded up some mobos, I think a few are asus, but I put them in there because they got good reviews in pcgamer magazine. But here they are none the less: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductCompa...&SubCategory=22 What do you think? Thanks!
  4. Okay, I'm looking for a mobo with the best chipset I can get. I have a magazine with reviews of chipsets that work with Athlon 64's. It reviews the NVidia nForce4 SLI, VIA K8T890 Pro, & SiS 756. I'm kind of lost as to what I should be looking for, as this is the first time I have considered a motherboard based on the chipset. What should I be looking for in terms of pci express lanes (graphics, north bridge and south bridge), RAM support, ATA support (SATA and PATA), and Interconnection speeds? Thanks! Richard
  5. Thanks! Thank you everybody for helping me out! Now I have to pick a Chipset =\ Thanks!
  6. Okay, so it doesn't really matter which, just one has HS & Fan, right? Sorry for my ignorance!
  7. So I would go with the X2 because it includes the fan and heat sink. What do you think? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16819103544
  8. So if you were to choose between the two, which would be your choice not considering price (such a small difference anyway). http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductCompa...SubCategory=343 Thanks! The only difference spec-wise I see is the L2: one is 2MB while the other is 1MBx2. Is this just like RAM in the sense that one is whole while the other is 2x? Does the 2x mean that there is more efficiency because of double input into the different modules if that is indeed what that means? Please excuse my blind stabs into the darkness .
  9. Such as: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16819103581 Is this what you mean? In this case, here's my comparison, since I see that the X2 outperforms the FX57 even though the FX is .4Ghz faster...and it adds the aspect of dual core. http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductCompa...SubCategory=343 Which looks better? The reviews for the Opteron 180 didn't look too good, but what's your guys' input? Thanks!
  10. Ah, okay...I'll keep looking around. Thanks! ----------- Okay, I have yet again another question: Compare these two: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductCompa...SubCategory=343 As I am not positive as to if the FX57 is a dual core (I believe that it is not). I will be doing alot of multi-tasking and, of course, gaming. The FX is 0.4Ghz faster, but yet, it only has 1MB L2 as compared to 2MB in the X2. Which would be a better choice, considering that I will probably match one of these with a 7800 GTX. Thanks once again.
  11. http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductCompa...SubCategory=343 I'm looking for a processor that will give me multi-tasking performance along with good gaming performance. What is the major difference and which would be the best for the next generation of dual core processors? Is it too early to be thinking of dual cores as they are now? I'm also hearing that the 940 socket will be a dead end for any current processors. Thanks! Richard
  12. Okay, that suits me well. Thanks everybody!
