So I was originally planning on waiting to upgrade but recent events have left me with no choice, my Socket 939 finally died on me the other day and I feel its time to upgrade to i7. Only things I need for upgrade at the moment are Motherboard, CPU and ram. I was also wondering how to tell if your processor is D0?
I was looking at the ASROCK Delux (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...) but I don't know whether or not that is a good choice. I have about 700$ avalible and would like to get away with under 600 if possible for my CPU Motherboard and RAM, and i'm hoping to get a socet 1336 I7 920, does anyone have any recommendations on motherboards?
I wont be doing any heavy gaming but i would like the ability to upgrade this box if the time comes when I do want to, right now Im running two 20in 1680x1050 monitors and predominately use it as a workstation for programming/lite gaming.
