I'm putting together a new (semi-temporary)system consisting of:
I'll be upgrading this system next year if the new CPUs end up leaving this rig in the dust and DX10 becomes a necessity(hence the cheap video card). I'm not running Crossfire or SLI.
All of the parts have been purchased except for the motherboard. Info on the web is all over the place, right now -- especially concerning the Intel chipsets. I'm not even sure which chipsets are better for which CPU, let alone which makes/models to consider. 975x, P965...
Also, I won't be purchasing a sound card so I would like to find a mobo with good onboard audio.
I really need some help, here. Any information about the various chipsets would be great and any recommendations on specific boards would be greatly appreciated.
