SLI support will drive up the cost of a new mobo but since you only have dual 7800gt's a $100 video card would be faster and better choice.
you could get a decent intel g31 based mobo, a dual core 2.83ghz e6500, and 2gb of ddr2 ram for about $200. add a radeon hd 4850 or gts 250 and you're at $300. too much?
Hey everyone. My Pc shuts off completely randomly. I've replaced and/or tested every single component except the motherboard. So now I want to order a replacement motherboard. I have an Asus P5ND2-SLI but would like to try out an Intel board or something else. I'm familiar with pc's but finding a motherboard that will work with my configuration is something I'm finding difficult. What are my options?
Here's my components:
P4 3.0GHZ 830 2MB L2 Cache DC Processor with Liquid Cooling
2- 1GB DDR2 PC4200 Memory Sticks
2- Nvidia Geforce 7800GT 256MB PCIE cards SLI
650 Watt ATX2.0 Power Supply with Active PFC Power Supply
Seagate Barracuda SATA 500 GB Hard drive
Soundblaster Audigy 2ZS
Here's a couple links to my current Asus motherboard -
I also realize that my setup is getting dated and I might have to upgrade my processor or memory, etc.
Thanks for any help!
