So a member took a poke at the make of my mainboard....I poked back. The guy has a nice rig/board just not what id do....WORDS ON A SCREEN PEOPLE! anyway with everybodys requirements differing slightly i got to thinking...i run what i run according to my logic...what about yours??? I have no alliegence to any particular brands i was on amd 939 hen the athlons where the smarter buy last build...i started with the asus a8ve-deluxe (via wi-fi) then sold it on to go sli...asus a8n32-sli (nv heatpipe 939 sli)...i stuck with asus cuz the via based board was good and the a8n32-sli was a brilliant board at the end of its time with me i sold it on and started looking for a c2d solution...i sussed em all out...it was a tos up between the abit crossfire 975 board...(W1zzard was running one at the time) and my badaxe2....after much research and thought i settled on the badaxe and what for my requirements/logic at the time was the better buy....so how do you guys make your purchases i tend to stalk my prey look at the spec the numbers and then the feedback in that order????
