Default Does motherboard matter

If I upgraded from this MOBO

http://www.chaintechusa.com/tw/eng/p...o=13&PISNo=204

to this one

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...Tab=2&NoMapp=0

would it make a differance for the better or the worst game and performance-wise? Please tell me why in detail. Thank you all sooooo much!

2nd > 1st.

MSI's are generally considered very good mobos. Also it supports 1gb more ram, and a few other things. Just look through the featurettes =/

The problem is that my CPU is an intel P4 2.8Ghz with HT Technology and that mobo does not support HT technology. Is that going to matter very much?

If it doesn't support ht technology, it just doesn't use it. It's still compatable.

Is your case micro atx and atx because if it only accepts micro atx, the 2nd one wont fit.
