  1. im looking to replace my Asus P4SD-LA that came from a Compaq PC mainly because, well i want the PC to be freee like a bird =]

    Range: $60-70 CDN
    Im open for recommendations so please go ahead n let me know

    so far i got the following down on my list:

    ASRock P4VM800 ($60)
    http://www.asrock.com/product/product_p4vm800.htm

    Gigabyte 8S661FXMP-RZ ($60)
    http://pccyber.ca/scrItem.asp?product_subtypes_id=570&product_types_id=14&product_id=6315

    ASUS P4S800D-X ($69)
    http://www.ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=14190&vpn=P4S800D-X&manufacture=ASUS

    The latter two have an SiS chipset while the ASRock has VIA
    the last one has dual channel memory (which i dont think benefits me much as t his PC is never used for gaming at all)

    At a quick glance, I like the ASUS P4S800D-X of the four best.

    What about the other ones? is the P4SD800D-X much much superior to the others? I wanna try and get one as cheap as possible but nothing that will break in a week or two.

    btw, nice new avatar =D and whatever happened to ur old VC and CPU?
