Hey guys, I am finally gonna go 64-bit. I have everything that is nesscessary, except the MB and video card. Well, after looking at options i am gonna go with either of these two boards:

1. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16813136152

2. or http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16813136165

What i cannot decide on is Cross Fire or SLI, even though i am not using 2 graphic cards. I was not to sure about compatability of the graphics card cause i want to go with either of these two cards.

1.http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16814131007

2.http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16814241025

What i thought about doing was going with MB #2 if i decide to go with either of these two g-cards. But if either of these 2 g-cards are not as good enough as a nvidia then i can go that route. I just liked ati's hardware specs for the price. i really cannot go over 95 dollars. So if anyone can give some advice thanks !



Thanks guys.

Base on my opinion, nvidia mobo is what i really suggest. FOr graphics card i did suggest Cross Fire though. It sucks to know that nvidia mobo wont work crossfire and vice-versa if you dont know for your info. I suggest you get AM2 Crossfire board from sapphire. http://www.sapphiretech.com/us/products/products_overview.php?gpid=159&grp=6

For Graphics card if you are in budget try to get 2 X1650 pro or X1600 cf card and a X1600. If not two X1350 then.

Using a nvidia mobo and a ati card does not interfere any thing. But buying a nvidia mobo can only allow you to get SLI in dual graphics card. So if you want SLI go for a Nvidia mobo. For Crossfire go for a ATI mobo. If you're planning on using only one card then its possible with Nvidia mobo+ ati card and ati mobo+nvidia card.

Its your personal choice of graphics card. If you like to know about them check out reviews. They should roughly tell you how the card fares and so forth. Techpowerup! has many reviews from the past many many years. Look for the card you want to buy and view the reviews and disscusion about them. Hope that helps.
