478 PCI-E Mobo

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
OK guys im thinking i need a new GPU as it is holding me back a bit.

Well the whole system is but im thinking get a MOBO and PCI-E gfx now and i can put the gfx in the conroe system later in the year or when quad core becomes viable.

This is what im looking at:http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Compo...roductId=26571

+ £10 off due to google checkout.

However only 2 ram slots meaning i will have a max of 1gb for the rest of my 478 life.

If anyone can find another 478 board then it would be much appreciated as DDR1 and AGP is more expensive than its new buddies

Cheers for any help.

How much money are you planning to spend for upgrades right now?

It might be an idea to look at something like this:
- AMD Athlon X2 3600+ Socket AM2
- Biostar tForce 550 mobo (or similar if you can't find that one in the UK)
- 2GB Cheap DDr2 800 or even DDR2 667 RAM (don't need any faster than that)
- Video card

Was basically planning on just an Xfi Extreme Music this month + Maybe a 1 gig stick of ram

However i saw some PCI-E cards going cheap and my 6600gt 128mb wont cut it with textures on medium on BF2 without lagg

If i was to say a price now i would put around £100 or i will be looking in a big upgrade later in teh year.
