Wait. Maybe I read your post wrong, but you recommend getting the S3 because it doesn't have the Solid Capacitors... So, get the motherboard that won't last as long. I don't follow your logic.

Imagine using a Pentium 2 today. You're not going to be using the DS3 for 5-7 years from now. It will be too far behind.


If I ever had a transaction with you, please fill out my heatware!

Don't forget to stop by the Intel ES CPU Club!

5-7 years is an EXTREMELY long time for hardware... Considering that the motherboard that I bought in August is going to be somewhat outdated with Chipsets that support quad core processors.

What I'm saying is that Hardware comes out so frequently that by the time the hardware's life is up, you'll have probably bought new hardware.

motherboards cant die!
my old computer from 1993 which boasts an incredibly powerful pentium 1 300 mhz processor still works 13 years of ownage... although i stopped using that piece of rubbish in 2004 when i got my current pc, but thats still 11 years of usage!

lol his logic is that the hardware will be so old 5-7 years from now, that you will probably not even remember that you ever owned the board; you will have gone thorugh a few other rigs. so get the one taht will last LESS with WORSE capacitors; because you DONT NEED THE BETTER CAPACITORS
