I'am trying to get back into gaming, after having used laptops for quite a few years now. I have been doing some intensive research the last few days, trying to get in whats new and old, what works and what not. I have all my parts picked out and feel ready to go. The motherboard I have chosen is the MSI X58M (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...). Although reviews seems to praise it, user comments is generally the opposite. Mostly it's the form factor, and people advice against microATX cards, but also I've heard that the card have overheating problems.
My question is now then: Should I go with the MSI X58M, as it's a good card on paper, or should I get another entry level X58 motherboard, and if so, which one? Also, should I opt to get an ATX card and stay clear of microATX?
Mini ATX, ATX, Extended ATX, Whatever, As Long As It Has What You Need, And Is Of Decent Quality And Fits Your Case It Dosent Matter, I Could Have Went With A Standard ATX Board But I Went With A Mini ATX....Why???, Because It Has What I Need, Was Cheap, And Is A Good Board With A Good Chipset, And I Only Use Two Expansion Cards... My Soundblaster Audigy ZS And My Nvidia 9600GSO.
