I've recently had my computer (CPU or Mobo) hosed and its become apparent I need a replacement. Currently (excluding drives etc....) I have a
MSI 6390 Socket A
with a Athlon XP 1.67 Ghz.
I'm not entirely partial to AMDs, but it seems the cheaper way to go right now. Also, if the problem is my current mother board, I can just plug in the old 1.67 Ghz Athlon, if not, I don't mind upgrading to a Athlon 2800 XP or so.
Here's what I'm looking for:
- Reliable with warranty and driver support
- On board video (if better than a GeForce 4 MX 64mb, otherwise not necessary)
- On Board Sound
- 10/100 Lan onboard
- USB 2.0
- Firewire (would be nice if not too $)
- AGP & PCI (PCIe? not sure about the future standard)
Is there much of a price difference if it's prebundled with CPU? Honestly, if anyone knows a good deal on the cost/quality ratio, please post away!
