  1. My good Friends Graphic Computer Just died...(explosions)

    i wanted to ask what would be the most reliable mother board that he could buy. And that could be paired with an Core 2 duo E6850? His old board was an Abit and thats about all i know about his dead system.

    Also i was wondering about P35 mobos or should he get an Nividia 680i?

    I Got an EVGA system with an E6750 and it runs without hiccups should i recomend my layout or should he go with another company?

    all i need is an mobo that is not an P35 and is not Abit and supports Core 2 Duos?

    can any yall help??

    if i were you i would not sugest a 680i if he is using vista only becuase of nvidias piss poor drivers go with a 965p or other intel chipsets .

    naw he knows better than to install vista.... the only problem ive had with nividia drivers was there network access manager and it was causing me BSOD beacuse it messed with my torrent programs...
