If I went for a P45 motherboard, I would expect them to cost upwards of $250.
Even then, the newest model aren't always worth having as they can often have problems. I'm not even sure if PCI-E 2.0 is worth it?
Having that small boost for a lower latency RAM is also extra money that is not worth...
So this is what I have so far, I'm going to be using a 7900GT I already have on my old desktop.
I'm probably going to hold off purchasing a video card for another generation.
Any suggestions, recommendations, comments are appreciated!
