This is my 1st post after becoming a member of community. I am looking to upgrade my current ddr-1 pc. i am interested in dv editing & ps-digital nef editing files & will not upgrade for atleast next 4-5 years.
After reading our various community threads, i am still confused about which to select p35 /965 / am2 as mobo....thought about few components but would like to get some expert opinion from u ppl.
1.processor: C2d E6750
3.HDD:.........Seagate sata 2 250gb((16mb)x2
4.GPU:.........Sapphire ati HD2600XT.
5.RAM:.........Transcend 800MhZ 1 GB x2
6.PSU:..........CM Extreame 600W
7.PCTV tuner: Pinnacle100i
At present i have LG 700s crt, IEEE1394 firewire pci card, umax astra 4400 scanner.Lg dvd rom+dvd rw ide and os win xp sp2 regd.lic.copy with me.
As per universal abit web site, mobo compability article confused me about gpu & memory. So kindly suggest configuration.
It looks fine to me, yet, HD radeon cards are not what one expects (ouch!, it hurt to write that being an ATI fan), actually a X1900XT is far better and has less issues, a GeForce 8 would a nice choice too.
About your mobo question, P35 is newer chipset that the 965. P35 models support 1333 Mhz CPUs, faster DDR2 and DDR3... IRC
965 is a good board,just a generation older, limited to 1066 Mhz bus and DDR2 800.
In your case, a P35 is the recomended chipset for the processor u want.
