I am finally upgrading my Althlon 1800 and 9700 Pro Needs are mostly gaming (WoW, and planning on getting Oblivion - the Morrowind Sequel) and some (rarely) large rar files and video. Looking to get the best bang for my buck.
How does this look? I am posting in this forum because its the mobo I know the least about. I dont think I need SLI, and currently dont have any firewire devices, though it woulda been nice if it had it.
But most of all I want a trouble free, rock stable board.
Anyway pls look this over and let me know what you think.
Athlon 64 3700+ (San Diego) Retail $233.63
Asus A8N-E Motherboard $109.79
Socket 939, nForce4 Ultra, ATX, 4GB DDR, 2000MHz Bus (no SLI, no Firewire)
My only knock on your choice is the Power Supply ; I would recommend 460W or better and dual +12V rails with 30A total on it.
I put together a similar setup over xmas and had the same power supply you have, after reading some posts on other forums I decided to pick up something better and found this at PC Club (also Newegg):
