Sorry I disappeared there....was changing everything out on these Computers.
Thanks Saxon, Trotter, and Puddle Jumper..... shows how little I know about MoBos. I thought ECS was a good brand and I thought Asus was crap (I guess because they were building computers for Wal-Mart at one time). Though I had heard maybe a year or so ago that Asus was coming up fast.
Puddle Jumper, you asked about my budget. Its actually painfully small right now, which is why I was trying to save money where I could, but you guys are def. right, Ive been doing some reading and the MoBo is not where I want to cut corners, no pun intended. And no I dont HAVE
to have onboard graphics (I just bought that BFG Nvidia 7800gt OC) but Id like to so I dont have to share graphics between my monitors.
On the other hand....Thanks to you guys and this site, I just switched all my components over to my other Com w/ the Sempron 3100+ (your right, it feels better)
So I listed my HP Pav w/ a 17" monitor, keyboard, mouse, speakers, all original Recovery Discs/manuals/Word+Office and a really nice HP Printer/Scanner all on craigslist for $250 and actually got a call from a young girl a few minutes ago who is going back to school and wants a computer for that. Problem is her father is the money holder so, its not quite etched in stone yet. But if it goes through my bank will be back up to $400 and Ive already got the GFX Card......which is what I was so trying for when I came to this site in the first place.
So where is that thread about the $400 Build at?
