hmm I dunno man, that seems kinda sketchy. Ive never heard of ASrock, and it only had 2 pci slots and.. I think an agp but it only supported DirectX 8.1 and 128 MB video ram, thats not much. And ofc it has some crappy onboard vid card which I wouldnt even try to use, it would prbably be ok for awhile but its not gonna run new games for crap if at all. I would say find a bigger company board if you wan, i see that youre from Ireland but.. it would be worth your effort. The speakers ive never heard of either so i dont know. The cpu is a dec one, but you would get twice the cache and a little more processor power out of a 3200+. Or if you can squeeze it out, a 939 would make it more future proof and upgradable, because after the 3000 theres only 2 better cpus in the 754 socket, and theyre not gonna make more. And what was that -
ASRock Future CPU Port: Socket939 upgrade interface for ASRock 939CPU Board - Integrated Mirage2 Graphics with DirectX8.1 suppor
That sounds pretty sketchy to me, idk man.
