jack_of_java Posted February 18, 2007 Posted February 18, 2007 (edited) I'm looking for recommendations on a motherboard and supporting ram. Here's the details: Socket 775 for a Pentium D 930 dual core (already have the CPU) only need 1 PCI-e for GPU (more is okay..but only need 1 for a 7800 GTX that I already have) sata: doesn't matter..2 or more ide: just for the DVD Burner chipset: prefer Nvidia or VIA onboard sound: doesn't matter...sound card going in onboard video: doesn't matter...vid card going in Will NOT be overclocking or messing with the bios much. Form factor: prefer ATX, but will settle with mATX if it has at least 2 PCI slots would like to stay at or under $100... Comp will be used for audio editing and programs such as solid works/cad I'm looking at putting 2 GB of DDR or DDR2 in this thing (probably the latter since that's all I've seen). No limitations on that...probably somewhere in the 667 range of speed...doesn't matter really....but also I don't want the ram to cost me an arm and a leg (probably $250 max).... I'm asking here because I believe that the members here have a bit more knowledge of hardware than the bumbling idiots that post on newegg reviews, etc. So, if you would please give me an idea on what I should go with. I have primarily built AMD stuff in the past, but this is something new I'm going to try. Thanks ahead of time.
