I am building a new machine that will be strictly for gaming. If anyone could suggest a motherboard and chip that would be great. I would like to spend around or under $400 if at all possible.
I would wait a few weeks for the new AMD 760MP chip to be released. Motherboards that support dual AMD processors will be available. You can add another processor later, plus you will be using the new PC2100DDR ram. For a gaming machine, spend $100 for 256mb of ram!
