For the uses you list you could do as well with more or less of a board. I'm not sure it matters. It's pretty vanilla. It had been a week with no responses. Seemed like no interest, eh?
"without mentioning the inability to overclock, recommending amd, was just after your thoughts on this board as i will most likely get this board or something very similar in the near future"
Sounds like your mind was already made up. Mine will be when I get my next board and won't feel the need to ask "What do you think of this rig?"
I hope you enjoy it.
The box said \"Requires Windows 98 or better\"....so I installed Linux. There\'s no going back.
