ok i have been looking into buying a new mobo for my new pc i am building. i found a nice combo from tigerdirect for a mobo and 7800 video card for 359.
i know i can get the card from newegg for $284, but i am looking for a nice motherboard for gaming and sli in the future. also the mobo should last me more than 6 months. also i will not be oc too much maybe not at all so i do not need good oc capabilities. also the mobo should be very user friednly since i am not the most experienced person yet. i would like to use AMD dual core probably the 3800, around 2gb of ram, and have plenty of space for sata and pata hdd.
the mobo that i liked a lot was the ASUS A8N-32, because of the dual 16x for sli, its cooling capabilities, also the mobo can easily be flashed without the need of a bootable disk or anything so i guess that is very user friendly. the only problem is that it is very hard to get and the only place i found it available was tigerdirect.com and the say it will take around 20 days to get to me since they have to order it from ASUS and not from there inventory, i would gladly wait since i ahve no rush really.
i think i have posted pretty much all the info i can give and would greatly apprecate if anyone can help me with this issue.
