Which mother board should I choose...

Hi, :hello:

I wanna buy a mother board and my budget is Rs.6000.

Tell me a board which is a good performer as well as good for gaming. (I am not a hard core gamer but some times I become one).

Is MSI P45 Platinum a good board (In terms of gaming) ? What is its Price? What is the maximum Ram support of this board?

  1. Is this an upgrade? Do you already have a CPU? If so, which one?
  2. Yes its an upgrade...

    My old Mother Board is Intel D945GCNL... Dual core Processor (1.6 GHz)...2GB RAM (Kingston..667MHz..DDR2..DIMM)... :bounce:
  3. I think this is this your CPU http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=29738 the Intel E2140.

    Here's a review of the MSI P45 motherboard you asked about: http://www.overclockersclub.com/reviews/msi_p45_platinum/

    And another: http://www.motherboards.org/reviews/motherboards/1795_1.html

    These reviews also show other motherboards you consider.

    Your CPU and GPU are going to have a bigger impacting on gaming than your motherboard.
  4. I wanna know what are chip sets, I mean like P45 , X48....

    Which are the latest chip sets available and which one of them is the better??

  5. Hm, what are chipsets? Try this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chipset

    What chipsets are available? Here's some:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel_chipsets - for the most recent (last 18 months or so) look under "Core i Series Chipsets"
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AMD_chipsets -

    Which of them is better? That's a very subjective question. AMD or Intel? Cheap or Performance or somewhere in between?
  6. Ok... tell me which motherboard is better MSI P45 Platinum or MSI X48 Diamond with their current price???
  7. Can't speak from experience about either. Here's a feature comparison: http://www.msicomputer.com/index.php?func=compareindex&prod_no=1478;1392
