I am building a shuttlebox computer for photoshop and some gaming (What ever an 8800gt will allow me to play). My goal is to make something small and quiet and relatively powerful. I will be using an E4500 OCD to 2.7hgz, but I will be upgrading to an E8400. Also I would like to have 4 Ram slots if that is possible. Thank You for your input, Remember as it is stated in my username I am a NEWBIE.
I like ASUS but buy now Gigabyte - they seem to have better build qualities in the way of - the last ASUS 2 MB's were packed rough and some caps were leaning over severly where'as Gigabyte seem to have better quality control.
