I just built a new box. I waited untill I thought something big came along. Well, to me it did. PCI EXPRESS. I got a Intell 915GAG MB.
If U like games or just want a fast box,,,, Its 4 channel. as opposed to 1x. Its 16x graphics as opposed to AGP8x. 800FSB. There is now for a couple $ more dual channel DDR2. VERY fast. Hyper Threading. Get what is called SATA for ur HD. I went with the 256MB ATI card.
And U can put this togeather relitily cheap. stay with a P4 3.0GHZ unless U have extra $. The MB has onboard sound and video, but I wanted better Video. The sound is not bad at all. I have 5.1 surround and it works well with this sys.
Trust me on this. Its th3e biggest improvment in a long time.
