MOBO suggestions. SLI or Intel chipset? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
lol intel, i obviously would suggest SLI, for numerous reason, i used to have an intel rig but it left a bad taste in my mouth and was not happy when i wanted to install an Nvidia 7800GT card, the thing kept freezeing on the boot screen after installation, it was a mess, everyone kept telling me to disable the onboard video, which i did do but didnt help at all, so if you plan on using a graphics card in the future intel is the opposite way to run.

After my cpu boot up of an AMD system i was hooked!

thats my opinion, you can either take it or leave it!

Ill leave it

It sounds like you had a cheap little board if it had onboard video so that realy has nothing to do with intel quality or my selection(bad compairison(sp). The boards on my list do not have onboard video so if Im not mistaken there's not gonna be any issues with booting(with any card), unless of course there are corrupt drivers or faulty hardware. But thanks for your opinion
