I have just come off the telephone from the United States AsRock sales team (whom, which I have to say were very unhelpful and impolite - which is a first for me when speaking to America's)
Anyhow I advised them I was using a 775i65G R3.0 motherboard (micro motherboard, as this is the only size to fit my PC case), which I have got to send back to Germany due to an unknown fault that will not power my PC, although the PSU is fully working, nothing has changed or been placed into the PC for the fault to occur one day it was fine then, yesterday nothing
1x Weston Digital 1TB sata drive,
1x HIS Radion HD 4670 AGP 1GB DDR3
1x Intel 775 2Quad Q6700 2.66Mhz
1x Powercool 850 Watt 80+ PSU
2x 1GB DDR 400 RAM
1x PCI 5 USB Ports
1x Creative Labs Sound Blaster (unused)
I have plenty of in and out fans to keep the PC running at around 42'ish Degrees Celsius
The USA sales team gave me two from the below link 'G41MH/USB3 R2.0' and/or 'G41M-S', as they said the on-board motherboard graphics chip was far superior to the 'HIS Radion HD 4670 AGP 1GB DDR3'.
Please can someone tell me a definite answer if the above advice given by the USA sales team is true or not (and why, as I consider the AGP v's On-board graphics to be a bit untrue, but I may be wrong). Also, if something is better in the 775 micro size range then they suggested, if so which model to go for.
Once I have receive someones help, I can then send the faulty 4 month old motherboard back to Germany and either to request an exchange (with a possible slight increase in price difference) or simply a replacement?
Many thanks in advance for reading and replying, Jonathan
But if there is not going to be little difference using the On-board graphics on the proposed micro mobo's and that the mobo is more advanced as it is a PCI-E slot, which is in todays market, then I can sell the HIS HD4670 on e-bay or something.
I do not use the PC for gaming the PS3 is for that, as long as it's going to be great for windows 7 aero display and Adobe Photoshop's 3D facility.
Then...... I'll change BUT I do need the pro's and con's from a guru member and the new mobo model number to go for when sending it back, no offence btw.
