Ok, im building a new desktop, and i was tlaing to a salesman and a computer store, and he really confused me. all these new sepcs on each part gets me nervous about building my own system and having it work. i want to make sure that when i build it it will all work. so if someone can look at my setup here and tell me if its all compatible with eachother and if it will all work together, and also if i will be able to run Vista on it when it comes out that would be great. heres the links.


*Also, i was shopping around and reading reviews, and someone said that that MOBO i have picked out...""""cons: According to Asus, the MB does support Core 2 Duo; however the BIOS does not. If you don't happen to have a spare processor that will work so you can flash the BIOS, you'll be waiting for Asus to do it for you. Thus after paying for this MB I'm going to be waiting close to a month to use it."""""" thats what one guy said. does that matter to me? or will it work for me?
*Also i found another MOBO, its cheaper, but i dont know the brand, so heres the link to that one, and if someone could tell me if everything will work, and what MOBO to use that would be awesome! sorry to be a bother.

Welcome to Geeks to Go, smdospo7.

I prefer using intel MB's with intel cpu's so that's the route i would go. i like this board.


And i like the 975 chipset MB's even better if you can afford the price.


I tend to stay away from Asus MB's as they are problematic. I think you are asking for even more problems when it does not support the core 2 duo already( got a spare intel processor that fits?)( can you upgrade the bios without taking a chance on killing the MB?)

ECS, and PCchips MB's i have always used in the cheap builds that some people want. I find them quite lacking in extra's that most other MB makers include with their mb's( like overclocking abibity, or utilities that work well).

Just my 2 cents, OK!
