I'd like to repurpose the box/hadrdrive/dvd burner - like to get a micro atx mobo. So these things are shipping right now, but now I got on this Tom's Hardware site and now I'm wondering if I should go with a straight AM3/DDR3 board?!
I'm looking at newEgg and they have AMD II X4 955 Bundle with CORSAIR XMS3 DHX 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 for only about 50 bucks more than the 940/G.Skill.
Only thing is the only micro ATX motherboard that's AM3 is this DFI LP JR 790GX-M3H5 AM3 AMD 790GX that has only one review.
I'm sort of newb so it seems like I should stick with stuff that has a lot written about it.
But I also don't want to buy a new mobo in a year to upgrade cpu/memory...
Any help much appreciated. I guess I should add that my primary use is graphics / video editing / photoshop. I need a fast quad to edit avchd footage.
