So I have started my new job (night-time caretaker at a veterinary clinic), and plan to splurge when I start recieving paychecks.
Now… I already have my mind made up as to what sort of system I want to build… I just want some input as to what hardware I should get.
*Pentium 4 2.4ghz 800mhz bus
Reason - Best price-to-performance ratio right now. Keep in mind I don’t overclock, so please don’t reccomend the 1.8b to me.
*Dual-Channel DDR333 RAM
Reason - Again… best price-to-performance ratio.
*Motherboard that support Dual-Channel up to DDR400 (for a theoretical 800mhz bus)
Reason - I may want to upgrade to dual-channel DDR400 after a while.
Now… what I want you, the people of BFP, to reccomend to me is a good motherboard. I already have the processor in mind, plus the RAM (Kingston HyperX PC2700), so someone point me to a good motherboard, preferably one with onboard LAN, and onboard sound ONLY if its not that shitty AC’97 crap.
If I don’t get any suggestions as to a good mobo to use for this setup, I will most likely be getting the MSI 865P Neo motherboard, and just go and buy myself a network adapter (my current motherboard has onboard lan)
Anyway… reccomend away!
