I am getting my Tbird 1.4MHZ and Gigabyte 7DXR next week along with a 256PC2100 DDR (Corsair). Anything I need to know before I installed it like newer drivers or known issues...anythin will help as this is the first time I am going to this (I'll probably ask for help).
Great choice...at least that's what I'm leaning towards. I'm curious to see how it turns out for you. The only reason I don't buy it right now is because I want to see how boards with the kt266a chipset perform. I've read the review on here and they're saying that the performance of the kt266a are about 25% better than the AMD 760 chipset. I'm curious to see if that's a real noticeable difference to a user or just in benchmarks.
What other components are you getting? What are you going to use the rig for? Why did you settle for this motherboard? It sounds like yo've read all of the reviews I've read and so we may have come to the same conclusions. Let me know cause I'm curious.
PlexWriter 24/10/40A (don't get it yet though.) firmware still not good enough
or a great burner for the money is the:
ThermalRight SK6? (may be old info)
EtherLink 10/100 3CR990-TX-97?
I really don't think it matters a whole lot.
AMD single cpu Motherboard...:
we'll see once those Nforce benchmarks are release won't we. I'm betting on the Nforce chipset, but I heard its memory performance is better with a graphics card in the AGP.
