I'm not too concerned about using two graphics cards or overclocking.
I will be using my computer for internet, word processing, photoshop CS4 for photo editing, and the odd game for my kids. I would like to get high definition monitor such as dell U2410.
I don't want to buy a MOB that has a lot of "stuff" I dont need. but USB3.0 and SATA6 might be useful for the future.
Can you suggest an Asus or Gigabyte MOB and graphics card.
I was thinking of
Asus P7p55D-E Pro
Asus P7P55D Pro
Gigabyte P55A- UD4
Any suggestions or recommendations? I am on a budget and don't want to send more than I have to but don't want low end MOB and video card either.
You are capable of picking a good board if you know exactly the features you need for everyday use. I read newegg.com reviews even if I purchase somewhere else, such as Fry's electronics or microcenter in the usa. Newegg.com has an asus board with 750 i5 for $349. And frys has the 9650 quad core with biostar p45 board for $249 after rebate; it's old tech but plenty fast.
