Hi guys. I'm looking to get a dual core system becuase I multitask a lot, and becuase AMD seems to be better than intel, I have decided to get a entry level AMD x2 3800+ and a motherboard. Undecided on the exact motherbard yet.
1. Looking at the gigabit GA-K8NF-9
Basically I already have a graphics card that I want to keep because it has dual screen output (Nvidia geforce 4 Ti 4200)
The motherboard says it has pci express graphics card slot.
So could I simply slot this card or do I have to get another graphics card or motherboard. I'm not sure if they are compatible.
2. I've never had a system with any need for major cooling. Would this system need any specific cooling device, other than the stock cooling that comes with the processor. I'm not going to overclock
3. any other advice on this system would be much appeciated.
I have 1gig RAM. Have a Serial ATA HD which I connect via PCI slot, and and an IDE drive. That's about it.
