Kommandant Ro╬▓Motherboard is terrible, sorry to say.

You will need to upgrade that if you wan't to take full advantage of Vista. Because you will eventually want a DX10 card, and AGP is on it's way out.

That board is actually pretty damn good. Your ASUS board is actually the bigger piece of crap. You overpayed $50 for a crappy mobo. DX10 is not needed to run vista. DX10 will run software and he won't notice the difference.

And his board has AGP and PCI-e.

What can I say. The empire strikes back. Intel came through on thier word. AMD should be able to mount a comeback in early 07.

Strange, I've never heard of an ASUS board being called crappy. Quite the contrary, actually. To each their own I suppose.

The board is overrated. Overpriced Average performance Sub par overclocking In the end you are paying for the name and a extra PCI-e slot.

ASRock is an ASUS brand, genius.

ahhahah talk about getting owned. ok all of todays comps would not be able to take full advantage of vista features. DX10 is not supported by any video card yet. also faster hard drives are being puched forward by microsoft because modern ones are too slow for vista. vista is gonna be also very resource hungry with all the visual effects. http://www.extremetech.com/article2/0,1697,1931946,00.asp

And the saddest part is that their Budget brand is overall better than their main line. Asrock just put out a Crossfire mobo that is just better than most of ASUS's boards.. The only boards that Actually deserve praise from ASUS's are the newly released RD580, and the SLI32.

And guess what? You can turn those features off. Even fast 15,000K HDD are still slow compared to system ram. Don't expect miracles until solid storage comes about.

From Extremetech. "DX10 will use much faster dynamic link libraries (DLLs), and won't incorporate older versions of DirectX, as is done today. DirectX 9 will be supported side-by-side, through DirectX 9.L (basically, that's DX9 for the Vista driver model). So right there, without using any new features, DX10 should be more efficient and faster."

So you guys done with your half-assed ownage?

carl4286Your hard drive most likely won't quite cut it either. ATA133 has a transfer rate slower than the read speed of most modern hard drives. Besides, you probably want a 10,000RPM hard drive or a NCQ hard drive (both, if they made one) which you can't have with an ATA133 mobo. You've got some of the goods, but you might want to upgrade when you make the big switch.[/quote] You DO realize not even the new Raptor comes anywhere NEAR to saturating the SATA150 bus? Why do you think it uses said bus? Because WD is smart and didn't add extra features the drive didn't need (which would've pushed its price even higher) Even two in RAID can't do it. Plus my board has FOUR Sata ports, plus a SATA 3G connector on a seperate controller. If you don't know what you're talking about, don't talk about it:0wned:

You want to know why I bought the ASRock board? Because I heard a lot of good stuff about it, and my old mobo died unexpectedly, so I didn't have the greatest deal of money to be working with. I also wanted to hang onto my 6800GT, and this board offered me GREAT flexibility, since it's NATIVE AGP and PCI-E, meaning the ULi Southbridge on it has a dedicated bus for the both of them, rather than having the AGP bus canibalized on top of the regular Parallel PCI bus. Again, if you have no clue what you're talking about, just don't talk!:0wned:

Oh and one more thing, to the guy who said I overpaid $50, does that mean I have a $20 mobo? :rolleyes:

I was actually talking about the ASUS board. The Asrock board is pretty damn nice for the price. Other than highend benching boards (DFI) there is no reason to buy an expensive board another than for brand loyalty.

Read then own.

No, no reason. Certainly not because the silent board cooling was there. Certainly not because they have some extra PCIe slots to play with, certainly not because a small number have three instead of two PCI slots. Certainly not because the more expensive boards have better VRM circuitry.

Now, keep it on topic. Everyone.
