Thread Starter 
Hey all. I am looking to upgrade my computer with a new MOBO and processor along with an eventual new graphics card.

I want something that can last me a while. I want a system that can play the much higher quality games out there (Like Crysis or Bioshock)

If someone can just point me in th direction of a good MOBO and processor to start with, that would be great.

I want a system that can also run Vista (don't worry I am not going to get it any time soon haha. I just want a system that can handle it for when the time comes to get vista).
