Actually I was looking at this nView on eBay
Abit AN-M2 nView Geforce 7025 Socket AM2 Motherboard - eBay (item 170221751059 end time May-29-08 02:22:34 PDT)
and was looking for a way to judge it (Newegg)
Motherboards are so frickin hard to compare against one another, What one has the other doesnt but another has this tha fjlije Uhg!
I run dual monitors so I liked that this has a great Onboard graphics setup (Geforce 7025 - 3.0 shader), like having a second card practically, but it lacks the FSB speed that the Gigabyte you guys suggested has, and the sound isnt as good, I dont think it supports dual channel mem.....among other things Im sure. good price though.
Is there a MoBo chart like that Vid Card Chart around here?(LOL, that made my life a little easier for a day) I mean what makes a good MotherBoard? What Components should you really look for/at when choosing. Im not that up to date when it comes to this gaming stuff. Ive been (was) doing Graphics Work for years and it just never really bothered me when my Com paused when doing something big in Photoshop CS3.
"I played ONE
Game....and now look at me. 39 yrs old and trying to learn computers all over again."
And by the way, a completely seperate question. Ive heard over and over that PCI slots were going to be phased out for PCI-E and AGP 8X.....But all of these boards have more PCI slots than anything, and now its AGP slots that I hear are getting phased out. Whats going on, I have this strange feeling a year from now neither will be on a motherboard and I'll be the one getting phased out. Are PCI-E slots going to take over or not? And what good are those little PCI-E x1 slots or whatever those little short ones are, Ive never even seen a component in one before.
Geez, Im sorry for all these questions I keep throwing at you guys. You can tell me to go read a book! LOL.
Im going to bed before my brain breaks. Im sure youll hear from me tomorrow.
