Thanks, but actually ive just decided to go with this mobo http://www.logicsupply.com/products/ms_7265
It doesnt have pci express which i am upset about, but it has sata (reason i switched) more usb, and an ide. Since the only option is a pci card this seems to be the best card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814129062
, is that any good for gaming? It must be better than the integrated gfx. Also i like it because of its lower power consumption, that will solve a few of my problems although it would of been nice to go with the 120 watt pico power supply. Also, since im tight for space, would this be an option http://www.mycableshop.com/itemdesc.asp?ic=PCIFLX%2D06
to connect that to the pci slot so i can move the card around. There was an option between a 64 bit and 32 bit, idk the difference and idk whether that can support a video card. thanks
also the first motherboard i showed u doesnt support merom core 2 duo without a bios update, in order to update u need another processor in there..which i do not have. This new mobo supports merom, is it worth it to go for one of them @ like 2.13ghz for the price, or is the yonah @2ghz good enough for gaming paired with a decent gfx card.
Originally i was gonna go for this mobo. http://www.logicsupply.com/products/i945gtt_vfa
. And just use the integrated gfx and since it has a built in psu it would be very compact. But i decided to have this for more of a gaming pc-xbox because it would be cooler.
So far ive soldered the front xbox contoller ports to a usb plug so i can plug it into an onboard to usb plug and use original xbox controller. I am going to buy a dremel tool and all the computer parts once i have selected the best possible combination.
