so I'm going to be upgrading my processor, and it requires an upgraded motherboard and more ram, I will have 4gb ( originally wanted 3, but getting a 3rd stick of the ram cost just as much as getting the kit with 2x ram, with newegg's $40 off thing)

ram:

proc:
http://www.newegg.co...N82E16819103194
mobo:
http://www.newegg.co...N82E16813128043

a few new SATA optical drives to replace my IDE ones (new mobos only have 1 IDE channel? wtf?). My new processor and motherboard will go nicely with my 7900gs (because my current processor is bottle-necking), until I upgrade to a dx10 card when dx10 is more widespread than it is now.

next upgrade will probably be a few LCD monitors, cause I'm getting sick of the CRT's I have, one is dying.

I bet that I have to call Microsoft about the changes in hardware...

ive had great luck with generic motherboards. im 3/3 so far on them with the fourth in the mail. really, as long as it supports the features you need, most motherboards have the same suppliers for the main components.

Generic performance mohterboards? I think it comes down to noise minimization with higher-end boards. Just like high-end ram has heat-spreaders that block interference, motherboards are designed to keep different data paths seperated to minimize noise.
Ya, rly.

same with me, its just reading a bit into this one and its not looking like a good OC board, and with the processor i got, its designed to be overclocked
