Well, I'm not real keen on hardware, but I recently purchased a custom built single processor pc. I asked around and most everyone mentioned.
the ASUS A7N8X dlx motherboard. I must say it's a very good one indeed. It only has slots for three ram sticks though, but it can handle 333fsb.

Hope this helps,
George

Hey, i dont know what the name of it is.. but look for the alternate of the P4S8X motherboard (that one is pentium.. theres one for AMD). It supports up to 2 gb of ddr ram (2700) and 8x agp along with up to 3.1 ghz processor by intel... i dont know the exact specs for the AMD version, but maybe you would like to check it out.. it is a ASUS board BTW. I think your looking for AMD.. not sure though. Maybe this helps, dont know .

My understanding of the AMD vs Intel bit is this:

AMD is a great value processor with very competitive benchmarks at lower core voltages.....it's a great gaming proc.

Intel however is generally the more expensive cpu....and is geared mostly to computational functions.

Intel has released a 533Mhz FSB not sure about AMD yet......but if your a home user and cannot afford a RISC processor it's the next best thing.

If you use Maya exclusively....I would go Intel

If you use Maya and Game etc....go AMD

I am an AMD advocate....partly because I can get the same performance for a cheaper price.

Thats cool saiyan . Yea, i basically only do graphic processing now.. im not into the game bit anymore. I just got sim city 4 and that was put into the corner after a few days, even though its such an amazing game.. just dont have the same passion for it as i have for Maya. Thanks for the info . BTW.. whats a RISC processor... and what price range do they fall into?
