hi i want to upgrade my pc
i know what i need/want my mobo has to have one agp slot for my vid card and i want ddr 2 thats alot to ask for i know but i found a mobo that handles that but every one i talk to says it sucks i have never heard of the bradn but if you dont plan on overclocking it shouldnt matter right. i mean im gunna get a 3.6 processor 2gb of ddr2 ram so i wont need to over clock any thing. basicaly all im asken is does the mobo really matter unless u plan to overclock. if i could find a better mobo i would get it but there is only one iv found that handles what i want
heres the mobo i was thinken about getten http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16813135157

Why not PCI-X??

Why do you want a AGP vid card?? PCI Express is faster and you can run SLI.
Which cpu are you going to use??

In reply to: Why not PCI-X??

A) it's not PCI-X, PCI-X is 64-bit PCI running at 66MHZ, 100MHZ or 133MHZ and is used for enterprise level add in cards such as $1000 RAID controllers

B) your thinking of PCIE (also called PCIe or PCI-E) which is another interface avliable for server boards that has recently been ported to consumer level equipment for graphics, it allows SLi or CrossFire if you have the following:

A) a chipset that supports it
B) graphics cards that support it
C) a motherboard that supports it
D) a power supply that can handle it

your post is mostly wrong and he did state the CPU he was consider

the Pentium 4 3.6GHZ
