Right either today or 2moro i think i will be ordering a new processor and mb. I know what processor to get, the amd 64 939 pin winchester. But i am thinking to much about board make. I have asus which was working ok but when i mates togther he had a faulty asus board. I hear msi are good, but not sure. Any ideas
Also should i invest in a new psu. Somthing which aint so loud. Current psu is 450watt but its a cheap one.

Links would be good to thanks all

Im guessing that u use a AGP card and will be keeping it so i would recommend the MSI Neo 2 Platinum. Ive been using this board for about 3 months and it rocks, lots of features including - nforce 3 chipset, dual lan, dual channel memory slots, 7.1 audio, s-ata and plenty more.

If your planning to get a new psu i would say dont ever buy a cheap one, good quality psu's give much better overall system stability. About the £50 mark would get you a mint psu
Try these http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatalog/Hiper.html The third one down is pretty good

The board i think you can get for a low as £80.
Check here http://www.planetprices.co.uk/hardware/32/2100790/1/MSI-K8N-NEO2-Platinum.html#

Even if you dont have sata hard drives yet you may wanna stick one in sometime in the future, so it would be a nice addition to your sys.

Hope that helps bud

I use MSI a lot and have always found them to provide robust, stable and reliable boards.

It's for this reason I always look for MSI when I am system building etc... You can't get much better!
