link to info
need all info. I'm looking to build a new computer
Anything made by Asus
Without more details we can't help you much.
But yeah...I have had nothing but good luck with my Asus. I had an abit that had issues with the IDE drivers. Not to say that that is an issue with all abits, just something that I experienced.
you need to decide what processor you want first
I've always been happy with Abit boards never had as good of luck with Asus myself.
what kind of cpu?
i really like my socket A asus a7n8x-e deluxe (asus flagship socket A board)
with an athlon 64 fx processor.
my bad. I'm new to this, this is going to be my first complete build. What's the best processor. cost really isnt an issue
i'm kinda partial to pentium processors because i worked with dell computers for a while. i dont know much about amd processors.
I just want to build something that wont become obsolete in 6 years. I'm looking to pretty much max everything out. Best video card, best sound card, 1 or 2GB ram or 512mb ram minimum.
So that's why i'm looking for the best board and processor. Thanks for the help guys, keep the imput coming

That's from pricewatch.com, am i going about building a computer all wrong or no? I figure get the board and processor. then get a box, then get all memory/video/sound/network/ cards and hdd
Thats A tad expensive, I recommend Newegg, Great selection and free shipping on some items, very good site. www.newegg.com
Not possible unless you never upgrade your software.
I've had very good luck with Intel motherboads. Extremely reliable and stable. Asus is my 2nd choice, and if I were building an AMD system Asus would be my first choice.
I like Soyo motherboards.
you know PC Chips Just bought out soyo right?
No reason to get a socket 940 and an FX if you can get an FX and a socket 939 board now. The 939 mobo will give you better upgradability in the future, because the socket will be around for a long time. And, the 940 requires registered RAM, which is more expensive.
doesnt get any faster then that
anything you buy now will be obsolete in 6 years.
What about ram chips? should i get 2 sticks of 2gb? or 2 sticks of 1gb?
$885.00?!?!?!?!!?!! MOTHER OF GOD!
Definitely go ASUS.
Fastest desktop processor in existance. Faster than the fastest Pentium 4 overclocked. Worth the price tag for that kind of bragging rights.
