    motherboards

    should i go for a SLI mobo or a 8xAGP mobo? also after putting ur processor and hs and fan into ur tower when first booting up is there any configs i would need to do? or does the bios alrdy come with standard settings?

    plus which mobo would be best forr a AMD 64 bit 3200 winchester? was thinking the Abit AV8 3RD Eye but heard i would need to bios flash it andf tht sounds complecated but not as complecated as spelling complicated =)

    SLi is PCI express only, you have just bought an AGP card.

    Bios comes as standard, only thing you may have to do is to set it to boot from the CD first.

    Theres loads to choose from, read the review sites and get a good knowledge of them.

    p.s. mate, no offense, but you are starting loads of threads all asking questions you could ask in one thread, its getting confiusing lol

    i know SLI is only pci-e but was wondering about the future weither agp will be gone in like a year or will it be longeR? btw i dont think of these all at once they r sparked off by wht people say in posts and when im playing counter-strike =D

    You appear to have a choice in between AGP and SLi: Bog standard PCI-Express (without SLi). There's a few non-SLI PCI-Express mobos around as well. SLi is only worth it if you are going to stick two identical SLi-compatible graphics cards in it. If you're only ever going to use a single graphics card then you can get a PCI-E board.

    I'm not sure there are any other advantages to SLi mobos over non-SLi mobos if using a single grpahics card. I'm sure i'll be corrected if i'm wrong!

    PCIe is better than AGp, I cannot remember the throughput differences off the top off my head and if I did not take such a hit on money since I bought my 6800GT on AGP I would have gone to the PCIe ranks.

    Hardware knowledge, through forums, building rigs for myself, for other people, oh and then thiers my job in IT that has me troubleshooting business spec machines, that kinda helps my windows knowledge

    ahh ok ty i just brought my 9600 pro so i could play with better graphics then this crap fx5200 so i think ill prob go with a pci-e mobo next i did hear tht they can have double the amound of pipelines tht agp cards have but i heard they also had drawbacks like the graphics werent as good =)
    oh and would a atx12v psu run a pci-e mobo?

    ive always like computers but never really got into the hardware side as i dint have a good enough pc untill i started working now i found hexus about 2 weeks ago my knollege has trebbled just reading posts etc nice bunch of people

    On the contrary, most of the next generation cars (if not all have a model) are PCIe and provide superior graphics than AGP8x (if they are a high powered card)

    PCIe has more pipeline and "lanes" for e.g. PCIe 16x has 16 lanes (I think they are called that anyway) so they are the next gen of communication protocol.
