    AMD64 Board n Chip

    Need a new machine for someone at work, so, as I'm nice to myself at work I'm going to give them my XP2500/1Gb/NF7-S thats sat under my office desk and get me a new rig, after all its a reception machine and they dont need anything flash, and I, being IT chap need to have the best in the building, its all about the toys

    Only downside being it has to come from EBuyer as thats where we get most of our work stuff from..

    So, 754 or 939/940, needs to have AGP really instead of this PCI-E stuff as I just wanna swap out the minimum of stuff, guessing Newcastles the chip to go4 but its been so long since I was actaully into the hardware bleeding edge that I dunno wtf is going on atm....

    Winchester over Newcastle as it will run cooler, but no stock at EBuyer. Get S939 and then probably the Asus A8V Rev.2 Deluxe (£67.10 for teh WiFi version on EBuyer and plenty of stock). You want a matched pair of memory sticks, OCZ is currently top dog.
