motherboard - there was a comment that kind of scares me lol i donno wat it means. if a big deal please let me know
Cons: The manufacturer maintains that the CPU support list is up to date and accurate, and yet the most important detail, that the board does not support CPU's needing more than 95w is mentioned NOWHERE. Not in the manual, quick install guide, or online. In fact, the quick install guide states that CPU's up to 125w are supported, but they are not.

Graphics card - i have an ATI 9250.. older i know lol but it was 50$ so no big deal.. and i assume the on board will be fine for what i want to do if its not compatible
if anyone has a better suggestion, please use newegg.ca or at least a different Canadian site, seeing how im from Canada
