  • Which Motherboard to Choose

    Okay, currently I have Win Server 2003 on my old "experimental" PC that will soon have a new Motherboard, fast CPU, more RAM, 2 Maxtor 200GB hard drives, ATI video card (not sure which but probably the best one out), and a nice 7.1 sound card...

    So, I need some ideas on what type of motherboard to get. I am going to use my OEM full tower that came with my Dell desktop PC. So, the form factor really isn't a problem.

    I am probably going to use WinXP Pro or WinXP 64-bit (yes, I have it ).

    So, which motherboard should I go with that would accept at least a Pentium IV 3.0-GHZ CPU? I will probably use 512MB RAM but I would like to have a motherboard that would allow over 1GB of RAM.

    Also, what is a good motherboard that would accept 64-bit CPU's?

    Oh, and no this will not be in my car but it will be in the house.

    umm... you can't have P4 and 64 bit in the same machine

      Yeah, I know. Maybe I didn't word my request right.

      I am wanting to know which MB would work with a P4 and with what else I want as well as which MB would work with a 64-bit chip....
