    need advice on building a pc, needs to be decent fast with decent video(low res guild wars will be toughest thing on video). was thinking about this mobo and a decent ram/cpu combo on another forum. then all i would need is a psu. im trading this pc for a car so i can get a job. it needs to be decent but as cheap as i can get it.



    i have a 250gb sata hdd for it and the ram deal on the other forum 8gb of ddr2 800 for $90

    i have a 250gb hdd and im getting 8gb of ddr2 for $90 need a cpu/mobo combo that is decent and has onboard video at least till i can afford a video card for it. and a psu and hope to put it in an old oem case. budget doesn't really exist at the moment. i have a 1kw enermax galaxy psu maybe someone would trade me 2 decent psu's for it

    Powerful onboard video is harder to find.

    Generally speaking, nvidia chipset boosts stronger onboard video. (Like 9300 onboard video) But you will be limited to lga 775 socket which has no future upgrade path.
    As an example : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813141015

    Or

    You can try AMD chipsets with onboard video.
    Examples : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813153156
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130247


    Either one will be much better than onboard Intel video with an exception of the new intel HD that comes along with i3 CPU.

    The new Intel HD is vastly improved compared to GMA, I hear. For Intel HD though, you will need a H55 chiset mobo with i3 cpu.

    I hope you plan to buy a GPU right away then becaue GMA 3100 is as bad as GMA 950.
