some time ago a friend had recommended that i build my system around this mobo:
but i've taken so long to get the parts that Socket 939 is by probably close to obsolete by now and/or i should be going with more up to date technology in a different direction.
so, what's the best socket type (or even better, what's the best mobo) to plan/build around? i'm not into gaming but i will do a fair bit of heavish video editing. i want something that will have as long a life as possible.
leaning towards an LGA775 for Intel, i've been looking at an entry level intel conroe (this one
or this one
) but not sure what mobo would give me the best matchup. i'd appreciate comments on this cpu and/or possible mobos to go with it. (what about an ASUSP5W DH Deluxe
any advice would be appreciated
