Is this mobo and processor any good? And will it all work together(hd, RAM, mobo, dvd/cd burner, case)? I'm building a home computer for gaming on MMO's. I want to know if this mobo and processor will be worth the money since its on sale. I was shooting for an upgradeable computer that is SLI enabled. Later on I can drop in another graphics card if I need to.
I would stay away from the nForce 5 series and pentiums. Are you looking to use SLI in the future?
I'm thinking of using SLI in the future, i'm not sure if SLI is even worth it. I don't even care if it is AMD or Intel based. Just to give reference of where I'm coming from.
My old computer that just died on me was a E-Machines T2200.
1.8-GHz Athlon XP 2200+,
512MB of DDR266 SDRAM (pc2100/2700),
100GB hard drive,
40X/12X/40X CD-RW drive, 16X DVD-ROM drive
I bought it about 4 to 5 years ago and since then I had updgraded to a Nvidia 6800 AGP graphic card (iirc it was 6800) and I put in 2 gigs of RAM. But 2 weeks ago the power supply, mobo, and processor fried on me. So I'm starting from scratch now.
My true plan is to buy something and upgrade the parts as i need to I like to make my computers stretch out over the years.
I plan on using my old copy of windows xp for my new pc and my old monitor.
