Ok so I have already chosen the rest of my computer, I just need the motherboard now. First off let me start by telling you what I need in a computer.
Great graphics for playing games and watching high quality movies.
As much speed as I can get for streaming media, games, internet.
Good multi-tasking abilities as I like to do more than one thing at once, such as surf internet while watching a movie/playing a game/listen to music.
Good audio output as I like music alot.
Good music/movie burning and ripping hardware since I love music and movies.
And here is what I have compiled so far to meet these expectations:
APEVIA X-TELSTAR-BL Blue/ Black Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case
PC Power & Cooling S61EPS 610W Continuous @ 40°C EPS12V Power Supply
So with all this in mind, could somebody please refer me to the best motherboard to fit my needs. I would like something under $200. And I heard that WinXP only supports up to 3gb of ram? Is this true? Because I was actually thinking along the lines of 4GB for my system. Anyways, I'm in despret need of help. I know I'll be spending over $1000 and if I'm going to spend this much I want my system to be absolutely perfect. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
