Looks pretty solid to me.....although I'm sure someone else might recommend another MoBo.
You're onboard sound should be fine. I'd hold off on the sound card.
well since theres no x38 chipset for under 200$ thats good im going with the 750i just because i dont want to have to worry about updating the bios of p35 chipset mobo
and i plan on holding off on the sound card until i know about the onboard sound
I recommend waiting on the video card. The 4850 and 4870 are both suppose to achieve better performance than the 9800 GTX, for alot less, and are due out within the month. The new nvidia card (GT280) is also suppose to deliver better performance, abliet at a higher price.
At the very least these launches will cause a drastic price "re-adjustment" of the 9800 GTX.
when does the gt280 come out? i thot i read sometime in the last half of june i think?
and for just school work and gaming im assuming home premium would be more fitted for me rather than vista ultimate?
