Help me pick a Mobo
I need opinions on which motherboard to buy. I will be pairing it with an AMD 64 single or dual processor. Therefore, it looks like I will need something in the 939 family. I do not see myself using SLI but do want to use PCI-E x16 for my video card.
I currently use the following PCI cards:
From what I can tell, the 939s have LAN and sound built into them. That eliminates the need for two PCI cards. Do they have phone modem capability?
If I am correct in my assumptions, it looks like three PCI slots would be ok for me.
I do not understand what I would need PCI-E x4 or x1 for. What type of cards use these connections?
This will be for a gaming computer. I have never tried over clocking but it sounds like something I might try, after reading more about it here.
Thanks for any input.
