I am building a new computer with a Core 2 Duo E6600. I'm using this system for Adobe applications and music recording/production. I know what I want for all the other parts EXCEPT motherboard and memory. I know I want 2gb (2x1gb) of DDR2 800 memory, but that's all I know. What is an ideal motherboard/memory combination? I'd like to keep the combined cost of the two under $250. Thank you!
I'm sorry for the lack of info. I'm not concerned about SLI, and I don't really plan on gaming. If my budget allows, although it's overkill, I'll opt for an EVGA 8800 320mb card; otherwise, something along the lines of a 7900GS or ATI equivalent. I'm not planning on overclocking either, unless I have to in order to get the 1:1 ratio with the processor and memory, unless it doesn't make much of a difference. Hope this helps!
