What makes you ask this?
These are standard PC components designed to work together. What made you ask this?
As to the "perfectly" part I'll write no. Just look in these forums for people with PC issues daily. PCs are far from perfect.
I'm on a round to upgrade my PC.My present motherboard "Mercury KOB845 NFSX" does not support SATA hard disks. Now when i buy the intel's 'bad axe 2' motherboad, i'm getting confused whether i should buy SATA or Seagate Barracude hard disk? Which will deliver a high performance on the 'bad axe 2'?
That's a new question?
Sorry, I can't tell you about the performance of said pair. See if tomshardware.com has a test on that.
But in a nutshell, SATA drives work on SATA equipped boards. If it didn't you can imagine that motherboard's sales.
Let;s start with the basics...why are you upgrading ?
If what you really want to do is add SATA drives to your system...just get a PCI SATA controller.
After reading some of the reviews on the BAD AXE2, not sure it's ready for prime time or the one I'd pick as an Intel platform.
"SATA" and Seagate are not synonymous. Seagate is a drive mfg and SATA stands for Serial ATA.
Wikipedia describes it as follows:
"In computer hardware, Serial ATA (SATA, IPA: [ˈs
desperately want to upgrade!!!!!
I want to upgrade my PC as it is very slow, so, if i upgrade now then why not to go For The BEST components!! With my present hardware and configuration, I'm unable to Play or rather enjoy the graphical effects of most of the games...
By all means upgrade...
but it looks to me like the Bad Axe 2 is kind of crap shoot at the moment. Got to be something that performs well and is more universally reliable/stable than than the BA2. Did you read the user reviews on Newegg.com ?
No option other than BAD AXE 2
As i would like to upgrade my PC to the best configuration possible, i am planning to buy a intel QX6700 quad core processor which will only settle down on the bad axe2 and not on any other motherboard(as per my research). so now i dont have any other option left other than getting a bad axe2!!!
Bad axe 2 'OR' Gigabyte. . .
Gigabyte has launched their new motherboard GA-965P-DQ6, which can support the quad core processor and also has some new features...
Now which one is a good option- intel's Bad Axe2 or GIGABYTE's GA-965P-DQ6 ?????
Any Suggestions ???
I've browsed to the site newegg.com
Now considering that there are many motherboard models available to support the 'Quad Core' which one would you like to suggest me to go for!!!
Do you know about Gigabyte's new 'All solid Capacitors' motherboard? Wil that make any difference to the performance??? Just sometime back i found that AMD will be launching their Quad core processor... Do i need to wait for that?
ABOVE ALL! I WOULD LIKE TO SINCERELY THANK ALL YOU GUYS FOR REALLY HELPING ME OUT!!! THANKYOU SO MUCH...
AND OFCOURSE THANKS TO CNET!!!!
