Title: PC building blues Posted: April 05, 2007 (09:29 PM)
I think I fried my brain shopping for a motherboard. I need an ATX board with an IEEE 1394 port and full compatibility with ATI video cards. That leaves me with the ultra-finnicky 965 Intel boards that require very specific RAM. I searched for RAM on Newegg.com and found a measly five choices. At least it takes the guesswork out of RAM shopping.

You could've given me a budget and I would've built you a PC if you wanted...
Most motherboards support ATI cards, but it's much easier to find an SLI board than a Crossfire one.

Why do you want an ATI card so badly?

I get a mean discount on the ATI X1950 Pro. $100 off retail. While this is going to be a gaming machine, it also has to be done on a rather tight budget.

I think I fried my brain trying to figure out what all those hardware pieces meant. o_o
