Motherboard Question

by JouninMastah / March 5, 2009 5:13 AM PST

Hey everyone, my computer's been on the fritz for going on 4 months now, and after replacing multiple things, it seems like the culprit is my motherboard. I have a motherboard in mind, and I think it matches everything I need, but could some of you take a look over the motherboard specs and my current specs to see if I missed anything?

* 4 x 1 Gigabyte sticks of DDR2 RAM
* NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX
* SATA Hard Drive / Optical Drives
* AMD 64 x2 6000+

And here's the motherboard I'm looking at:

Thanks for any help in advance!

Hardware Confliction is one of the major problems with computers therefore you should buy from a trusted seller. You can also read compatibility issues from online sources.
