    Why pick such a random number as 2Ghz? A 2Ghz anything is way more than needed for the PC, but a 3.0Ghz P4, is slower than a 1.83Ghz Core 2 Duo...

    Even a Core Duo chip like the t2050 will be way overkill. I actually have that left over too since I am using the t5500 now and I bought the other for testing the jetway.

    You can find core duo's for about $20 on ebay.

    I dont know what it is Toaster, I guess maybe because my first install was such a flop. I had to pull the whole thing out and now im starting from scratch. Ive wasted so much money trying to go by a budget, my MoBo was crappy, PSU was crappy, and Ive had to replace so much. I figure this time i'll just buy the most high power stuff, that way I have no worries. I think I will go with a T5500, that way not so overkill.

    For what it's worth whether you go with the fuzzy or the jetway, I had great luck with
    http://e-itx.com/mini-itx-motherboard-intel.htmll They were the best price, they put it together and tested it before shipped. From the research i've done the T7200 is the best bang for your buck. The price difference between that and the T5500 are not much. I've also started with a budgeted board and took many opinions of people telling me that, that board was more than plenty for what i needed. From my experience VIA chipsets are garbage as well as shared video memory up to 64mb. Now that's some BS. I would have saved myself alot of aggrivation if i beefed up from the beg. I felt a bit thrown off because I purchased the system through MP3car and bought StreetDeck. My main problem was trying to run audio and video and especially Streetdeck. From my research it seems that all front ends are graphics hungry especially Streetdeck. I'm a bit annoyed that they forgot the mention that running a "beginners" MOBO was a waste of time because all it will do is snap, crackle, pop, lag, oh yea and crash, all day everyday. My attitude was that if I was going to buy another board, I wasn't going to test the waters again and hope that the "minor" upgrade will make the difference. I maxed out the jetway board with the most cpu and ram I could add. Like this not only would I not have to worry about any of my current or should I say past issues i experienced, but this would allow me the capability of adding future extras. GO BIG OR GO HOME!

    OMG, thanx for the link. They have the Fuzzy for an ok price and the processor for 9 dollars more then I see everywhere else. I think thats a cool deal. I agree with the GO BIG OR GO HOME mentality, well at least now I do. Number one, I should have gone with a INTEL based board in the first place. The VIA was such a big disappointment. Then the M2-ATX was too.... I got the OPUS 320 now, but right now its lonely in its case, waiting to get it on with its FUZZY and processor, which I hope to get when I get my tax return.

    Thanx so much for helping me to finally find a MoBo and Processor that will be more then enough for my needs.... and sorry Toaster for taking over your thread, and also thank you for your advice. You made me realize that I can go big without having to go BIGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG and over doing it.

    Just curious. what type of issues did you have with the m2-atx. cause i've read mixed reviews with it, I have one and I don't think I've had issues with it.

    I have alot of devices on my setup. which takes two 7 port USB hubs to connect them all. I also had the M10000, with a USB card for even more USB ports, and a Nvidia graphics card. The M2 could not handle over 13 devices and the MoBo, graphics card and what not. I knew I was going to build a big system, but i figured Id just get the M2 and hope it works. Well now i use my M2-ATX as a handy dandy paper weight.

    I got the fuzzy gm965 from ewiz.com. You have to Froogle the board and then select ewiz for a better price that posted on the website. It was 212.18 plus shipping.

    So my experience:
    MSI Fuzzy >>> Jetway J9F2
    My Commell only had the p4 connector. And it also didnít switch on. The solutions was to put the green and a black wire together to let the m2 think the cpc was ready to start. Maybe thatís worth a try ?

    I have been using this Jetway J9F2-KHDE motherboard with a T2300 Core Duo CPU for about a week and so far I'm quite impressed. Fast boot and hibernate times, quiet fan operation, good connectivity, etc.

    Only one problem though... somehow SpeedFan can not read the fan speed data from this motherboard... anyone having the same problem?
