ASUS is not the best.

Not all newer intel based computers use DDR2. He was correct on picking the right ram *184-pin DDR 1*

Sorry, my bad *one of the best.

In games, the GPU is more important, so you will get better performance out of having a better video card, and a weaker cpu. And, all the venice cores overclock to around the same point on air.

Also, another vote for the full sized motherboard.
