As you can see, im a nub.
I got myself suckered into one of the worst mobo's ive ever seen.
At Fry's (when i wasnt really into the whole research products thing) i bought a mobo/cpu combo, and got a 3700+ (64 bit) and an ECS RS482-M. The mobo is micro ATX, and barely fits onto my mobo tray, only has 2 mem slots, and integrated graphics...
The only thing good i can say about it, is that the board has more fan headers than my old 754, has pcie, and decent integrated sound.
anyway, i am trying to find a decent board that supports sli, and has more ram slots. (so i can keep my 2x512 and still upgrade ram)
my pricerange is 0-150 ish
