New here...Got a question or 2.
I'm going to be modding my current computer, if possible
I bought a dell XPS 410 a few years ago (just for school & very light gaming). It's unmodified atm, if you need pics just let me know.
Things to keep:
hard-drive and 2gb stick of ram are salvageable, but my hard-drive is making noises...everything is backed up.

My plans are to replace the Motherboard, PSU(it's a must), add more RAM, and add another GeForce 9800 GX2.
My cousin just gave me his 9800 that he bought on e-bay & wouldn't work on his...tested it on mine & everything was pretty, but too choppy, so I put the 7300 back in.
Right now I see a few screws on the motherboard, but I'm not going to touch it until I know that I can replace it, I can't really compare it to anything because I've never seen another one before
I figured I would come to you guys for some insight. What would be a good motherboard to use? I'm only wanting to use 2 Video Cards at the moment, I doubt I'll add more anytime soon. I've never overclocked before, and I don't want to spend too much money on cooling, but I'm willing to spend a bit more on cooling & some time learning to overclocking if need be, but I'd rather not mess with it if it's not going to be a noticeable difference.
So, just for now, what's a good motherboard that can handle my needs?
Thanks for the help =)
oh yeah, this is going to be for gaming, not hardcore (yet) but I want a system that's much faster than it is, and I want to be able to play most games on high if possible, but I'm not too picky.
