Re: Best CPU and motherboard?
What screen resolution are you running there? For a high resolution you will need a top end model for the price. The latest bells point at the 8800. Intel took the lead in gaming with their Core 2 Duo and Extreme lineup with the E6600 being one for stock use while still being quite oc capable. The top makes for boards are Asus, Gigabyte, MSI, with DFI and Abit trailing behind. A good 2gb of performance memory will go well like Corsair xms series, Kingston HyperX, Crucial, Mushkin, and a few other brands with OCZ in mind.
