Well first off thanks for all the posts.
My first thing would be this, am I going to have to mess around with the onboard graphics, I hadn't really realized it had onboard video. Newegg.com - ASUS M3N72-D AM2+/AM2 NVIDIA nForce 750a SLI ATX AMD Motherboard - AMD Motherboards
or Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-MA790X-UD4 AM2+/AM2 AMD 790X ATX AMD Motherboard - AMD Motherboards
Would that board be better to go with? Or does anyone have something else in that same price range?
That black edition is soo tempting, but I just cannot afford it. Will do the switch on the ram. HDD is 15 bucks more though, and 250 gb is plenty for me.
I am a little partial to nvidia however. I've always used them, and never had problems, so I have a little bias. Also, just about all the games I play are powered by nvidia. lastly, I have read that the ati cards have a lot of problems with driver updates.
I dont care too much whether it's an ati or nvidia board, I rather have 1 good card, so when they are outdated I don't have two old cards to try to sell.
So I would like to stick with the 9800 gtx+, unless someone can really convince me otherwise.
So I guess my final questions are, will that board I posted just now be better, or is there something else I should grab? And last, any recommendations on a case?
