Advice for a new Motherboard to replace a P4N Diamond!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi!...right now I'm using a MSI P4N Diamond.. but the trouble i'm getting for this board to work are too many! ... so i decided to switch to another brand... my specs are the following:

P4 551 3.4Ghz w/Thermalright XP-90
2G Corsair Value Select DDR2 533
MSI P4N Diamond [1.4]
Samsung SP2004 200G / WD3200 320G (SATA II / SATA I)
2 DVD-Burners
eVGA 6800GT 256
Leadtek WinFast TV2000XP Expert
Tagan TG480-U22

In the short term i'm not planning doing upgrades... maybe in the long term a dual core CPU, memory and new video card...

any suggestions?...

Welcome to the forums.

If you're planning on upgrading in the future and have a sufficient budget, the Asus P5WD2 is an amazing motherboard. It's a bit on the pricey side, but it's very touch to beat that among LGA mobos.

Please take a minute or two to enter your system specs in the User CP. Links are provided in my signature. That will better help us help you.

I think the member above is correct about the ASUS board.I have the p5nd32 Deluxe and if you had problems with your diamond you might not like it either.Of course there's no SLI so you might want to wait for a 975 mobo.

I was waiting for that one too but I decided to get the P5N32-SLI Deluxe since the nF4 SLI X16 Intel Edition NB is better than the 975x anyways.....
