Time for a mobo upgrade.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Well, I've had my ABIT AS-8 for a little over a year now and I think It's time for a new one. Can anyone suggest a good motherboard for me?
Specs:
Socket T LGA 775
AGP 8x
4 DDR Slots

Just check out the rest of my CPU specs below...

Are you looking to change out anything else, or just the mother board? If your just looking for that and there is nothing wrong with your PC than I would suggest upgrading and getting a new graphics card as well, come into the PCI Express realm. Since you still have AGP you would have to go with an AMD chipset to get both PCI express and agp, which means you have to get a board and processor. If you stay with intel you will have to go to PCI_Express otherwise there is no real point in upgrading. But that might cause you to have to change memory depending on you having to go to DDR2 i am not that familiar with all of the 775 chipset options but I didnt go that route because my last 478 socket had PC3200 which I was able to just bring over to my current system. All the 775 boards I wanted I would have had to get DDR2 with.

So the question is are you just trying to get a Mobo or are you looking to build a whole system?

All I need is the mobo.
Everything else is fine with my system. And I'm not going to spend any more money than I need to.... I'm happy with AGP right now. I do want to go with PCIe but I dn't have the money. Unless I can sell all my stuff for a decent price and get enough mony to get a new PCIe mobo and GPU.

So basicly I'm sticking with getting a new motherboard.

Try an Asus P5P800E Deluxe if you can find one...or the DFI 875-T.

Well I am curious why you are upgrading the mobo if your not upgrading anything else? I doubt you will get any kind of preformance increase switching from what you have now.

I see no reason to make this move unless your motherboard is problematic.

That was the reason... But today I check out a few things and everything seems to be working fine right now. So I don't think I'll need to get a new one.
