    Exclamation New Motherboard Recommendations

    I am after a new motherboard.

    Including:

    Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 / socket 775
    4 - RAM slots

    I was wondering, the one i want so far is Abit Dark Raider, but I've just see one that takes a PCI-E graphics card AND a AGP graphics card..

    is this recommended? Or should i go with a SLI/Crossfire board?

    & do you need an AGP card slot or Crossfire or SLI?
    If you don't get the IP35 as it's a bargain atm on Scan Today Only.

    Agreed, if there's no reason for you to have AGP (not got any PCIE cards?) or SLI/Crossfire (they're not that great, and expensive) then go for the IP35.

    If it takes AGP & Dual core, it is probably an Asrock `board. Fine for what it is, but I don`t think comparable in any way to the Darkraider, very limited overclocking etc.
