so far i have decided to buy an amd x2 dual core cpu and i and want to use my current video card, which is a sapphire R x850 xt. at first i was going to buy MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum nForce4 Ultra Athlon 64 Skt939, but i realized that it doesnt support 4 gigs of ram, only 3 gigs. so i need some help. i need a mobo that comes with firewire, supports 4 gigs of dual channel ddr 400, and runs well with my x850 xt. your help would be much appreciated thnx.
Why do you need 4Gb of RAM?! The entire 4GB won't be recognized unless you're using a 64Bit OS. Anywhoo...Epox 9NDA3+. If you can do without the firewire, then take a look at the Asrock 939Dual. For the cost savings on the mobo, you could get this Syba 64Bit Firewire card 1394a/b and have the option to upgrade with a PCIe vid card later.
