Re: Which Socket 939 board?
The expert one seems to have 1 extra pci slot (always useful) the expert has 8 audio channels for the onboard sound rather than 6 of the other. The non expert is slightly smaller than the expert one, thats bout it i think lol. Expert one looks to be the winner all round. Ive had no dealings with that make but ive heard its good. I LOVE my MSI motherboard, fantastic to overclock and has soooo many options in the bios. Best board i have ever owned and ive owned a few.
One thing ive found, if u r installing Dual core over single core system , ie not reformatting windows, it needs to be reformatted or it wont work, if its a dual core cpu and just the motherbaord being changed then u prob wont need to reinstall at all. Well thats my experience anyway. But best to make sure u have ur data backed up just in case of any problems on the way.
