New computer build...motherboard suggestion please.
I'm getting ready to hit the order button, for a new computer, and decided I had better ask a couple questions before I make it final. I want a ATI Radeon X1900XT video card. I have an epox SLI motherboard picked out and was wondering if there is a better motherboard choice since I won't be using SLI?
Also, would I be better to get the WD Raptor 150GB or get the WD 350GB 3GB/s drive?
Here is what I'm ordering...
