I have a computer at home that I built myself about two years ago. I was one of the many people who were fortunate enough to get in on the Windows Vista beta, but ASUS hasn't release any Vista drivers for this motherboards SATA ports. So, when I boot to Vista, I am able to see the IDE drive I run XP from and I'm able to see the IDE drive I installed Vista to, but I am unable to see my SATA RAID0 HDs that store all of my data!
I figured I'd build a new system so started pricing parts the other day. When looking at Motherboards, I noticed the AM2 boards on Newegg say "AMD X2, AMD FX, and AMD Athlon". I assume this means they support older Socket 939 chips, but how can that be?
If they do in fact support older chips, I can just buy one of these newer motherboards and be back in business. If I'm not understanding something, I'll have to build the new PC.
My current motherboard is the ASUS A8V Deluxe and my processor is the AMD Athlon 64 3700+ single core processor running at 2.2 Ghz.
If I can put this processor in the new motherboard, I'll do that for now and get a new X2 chip in the near future.
Any and all information will be greatly appreciated.
