I'm going to buy a Intel Pentium 4/ 2.8E GHz 800MHz FSB, 1MB L2 Cache, Hyper Threading Technology - OEM and i'm not sure what mother board to buy. Does anybody know what mobo I could buy that would be the cheap and would support this processor? Also I have Windows XP so will i have to reinstall my entire operating system? Thanks, Chris
this one looks good - ASUS "P4S800D-E Deluxe" SiS655TX Chipset Motherboard for Intel Socket 478 CPU -RETAIL and i'm sure you know where to get it
Personally I would stick to an Intel chipset, something like a Asus P4P800. It's a good solid allround board. Reinstall windows, don't just stick your HD in your new rig. I know it's a lot of work but it will save you a lot of headaches later.
Thanks for all the help! Do you know which motherboard is cheaper though?
the one ETE suggested is $112, while the one i suggested is $101
Thanks I'll order it now ;)
I take what n0e says way too seriously
