  • Good motherboard or not??

    Wasup, been looking at new boards 'n' proccessors for my pc, My main aim is to get my machine good for bf2 at least, here are my specs at the moment:

    ATI radeon 9500 256mb
    40gb Hard drive
    MSI ( Micro-Star ) Pentium 4
    Two 512 DDR Ram stcks ( 1024 mb )
    Intel Celeron

    Please tell me whether this motherboard is any good for gaming needs and if it includes a amd proccesser ( im no good with checking these things ) also if all my hardware i posted above will work fine with this board thanks.

    That's an AMD board, it's a good board. DFI is mostly known for it's ability to be integrated into a LAN type environment, hence the 4 serial ATA slots that can make a serious raid configuration and hardware monitor leds. I personally prefer something that has features for the single gaming type. That would be fan control, CPU overclocking, control over the agp and memory. Asus and MSI seem to be the best out there IMO.

    Check out the Asus A8n series of motherboards.

      MSI is a good brand, but be aware that it's a self-proclaimed bargain brand.

        That's the board i have. Rock solid. I haven't oc'ed anything yet so i can't really help you on that front. Maybe some reviews (I think there's a good one an anandtech) would have some more info there. If you want the Oc-ing i wouldn't reccomend the MSI though b/c there board don't seem to clock as high as others in testing.

            Ok listen up guys i realised i cannot buy that board, So i would like a suggestion board that can handle all of my needs and support my hardware ( maybe even have a pci-express slot just incase i need it )This board should be suitable for games like bf2, DOD: Source E.t.c And it should be as simple to go into my local computer shop and ask for that specific board to be ordered, also a nice review of it wouldn't go a miss,thanks
