Best Motherboard

By codeseven

  1. Is there a mobo that can use either DDR or RAMBUS memory and uses a 478 pin CPU?. I would like to install a board that would allow me to use DDR and a slower CPU and later on switch to RAMBUS and a faster CPU when prices come down or my budget permit's. What manufacturer and board would you then recommend? Thanks

    Never seen a motherboard that can use both of those types of RAM before codeseven - and I doubt there is one. ALIMagik had a chipset that could use both DDR and PC133 SDRAM - but I don't think you'll find what you're looking for. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    I recommend Abit, Asus and Intel.

    I'm an ASUS junkie. They make the best boards, for the money. ABIT makes excellent boards as well.
