Motherboard selection

  1. Hello.

    I have a post on the other forum about RAM upgrades but the topic of it has changed so i thought this forum would be more appropriate for where it is headed.

    I recently bought extra RAM not knowing an awful lot about motherboards and computers in general i thought i could buy RAM and simply stick it in the motherboard and it makes my computer go faster..how wrong i was. Anyway as i discovered my motherboard only supports the use of 2 of the 4 RAM slots at any given time. Now i have extra RAM and nothing to do with it :(

    Which motherboard would be best suited for the following computer spec.

    Pentium 4 3.2GHZ
    Nvidia 6600 GT 128MB
    4x512MB RAM (Corsair Value Select)
    Windows XP

    Preferrably with room to expand as i dont really want to buy another motherboard for a while.

    Thx Necrosjef.

    Windows XP

    If you have a local computer shop then id have a look to see what they do if i were you. At least with a local shop its easier to take back if you have a problem.

    P.S. Had some experience with MSI motherboards and found them to be very reliable.

    Hope that helps, Rik.
