well i had ordered all my new computer components and I was pretty excited. I put them together hit the power and nothing came on. long story short i returned the motherboard and cpu since i cant test them individually, and newegg tells me, well we're out of stock on this motherboard so we'll just refund you. it's a very generous effort but now i'm without a motherboard, so here is the one i'm looking at as a replacement. it's $50 more then the one i picked out prior, but i'm reall happy with all of it's kewl features, i've also gone without this upgrade happening for so long i need something to make it feel worth the wait, lol.
ASUS P5W DH DELUXE/WIFI-AP LGA 775 Intel 975X ATX Intel Motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16813131025
I'm ordering it right now, let me know what you think. Also I've already checked and it's compatible with all my hardware. lol it was one thing to get all you rhardware to match your motherboard, but to get a motherboard that matches all your hardware? thats just annoying...
but this board does seem to have everything i wanted and could ever use for a long time.
so gimme some comments!!!
