Re: budget gaming computer
"as for mobo, I don't plan on going the sli road. well, I think the GIGABYTE is ugly and the ABIT IX38 Quad GT is expensive. Is the mobo really worth spending a good amount on? any asus mobo's worth considering?"
Other mobo's recommended in these forums that are similar to the Gigabyte are Abit IP35 and Asus P5K.
And yes the 8800GTS 512 is better then the GT but it's also more expensive...
