Re: New board with these specs
It is a good video card, but it's just too bad it uses the aging AGP interface. The PCI-express interface is faster too. I'm still using an older 7800GT, just a bump higher than what you have. It's fine and all but then again, it's a PCI-express video card.
There are a lot of great motherboards that support an Athlon X2 CPU. Also, you'll most likely use DDR2 since DDR1 is out, gone with the wind. Yeah, technology change that fast. Athlon X2 are undergoing a major overhaul right now and we won't be seeing those later this year or early next year.
How much are you planning to spend anyways?
