Just better boards can overclock better, and can get better performance (by like 1 FPS though) also you get like Multiple PCI-e connectors and such

diferent raid capabilities more usb ports better energy efficiency, all sorts of things, and a better board will allow better overclocking but really the chipset matters most for that.

o so it seems like mobo is not that important. Well as long as you dont get an el cheapo one lol. Thank you very much vernong for the suggestion. the cheap cost of the biostar has put a big smile on my face


Okay, my boyfriend has decided that he wont mind spending extra $50 if the computer will be much better.. so i might still get the ASUS series that we were going to get before... BUT we will probably not be doing any Overclocking. So what should i get? the biostar or the ASUS? Will the bigger cost of the ASUS even be worth it if we dont plan on really overclocking?

No overclocking? stick with the P43, and save that $50 for something else like a better GPU or Cooling or case or something

ooooo, okay.

well this thread has made me curious about few things. First, what is "raid" that poizen is talking about? Second, when you say overclocking do you mean overclocking the board or overclocking anything (i bet this is a stupid question... but i am new at this). We might try overclocking the graphics card later but we are still unsure (it will depend on how hard overclocking a graphics card would be).

o yea, and i am getting a 2x2gb ram. that will work fine on this mobo right? spec says it supports up to 8 gb ()

You don't need a good board to overclock the BIOS, that's done through software so the board doesn't matter..

RAID is "Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks" meaning you can take multiple HD's and put it in an array that can be used for extra HD speed or ultra backup (or both), yes it will work with 4gb
