Default Re: Gigabyte Motherboards

-I will be using onboard video for a while, which one is better: Intel G31 or nVidia GeForce 7050/nForce 610i?
G31 is slightly better, but it's still piss poor. You won't see it helping out your CPU during HD/Blu-Ray playback.
-Also, when it says it supports C2D does it also support Dual-Core? Some CPUs are classified as Dual-Cores and other C2D
Such as E2160/E2200? Yes it will. The Pentium Dual Cores are C2Ds with 1MB of L2 cache, an 800MHz FSB and lower clock speeds.
-Also, if I had to choose between Dual Channel support or a better onboard video, which one do I go with?
G31 has them both.

AMD Phenom II X4 955 BE @ 4.0GHz + TU120E lapped - MSI 770-CD45 AM3 - 2x2GB OCZ DDR3 1333MHz - Sapphire HD 4870 - Samsung Spinpoint 500GB 7200RPM 16MB cache HDD - Tagan TG600-BZ Piperock - (Currently open test bed) - Windows Vista Home Premium 64bit.
