  1. well,i ordered new CPU,thats Intel Core2 Duo E6300 1.86GHz, 775..the problem occurs at current motherboard doesnt support C2D,so i have to get new one..but there is other problem..i have only DDR ram modules in my PC (2x Patriot DDR LONG DIMM 1 GB 400 MHz),so i need motherboard,which would support C2D and least for some time,untill i sell old cpu,motherboard and with time also that patriot rams,so i can buy then some DDR2 rams..i found 2 motherboards,which would support both :

    it would have been only temporarly,because as soon as ill get enough money for some proper ddr2 rams (2x 1GB),i would also buy some other motherboard,because these 2 doesnt seem to be i dunno how good,so i ask u to tell me which one should i buy or if u know for any other good motherboard,which would suit my needs..

    also it needs to support my x1900GT..i dunno for first MB,because there says,that it doesnt support my videocard,but it supports x1900xt and x1950pro,so i think that should support x1900GT also,or??

    guys,plz help me out with that...tnx for answers

    Of the two, I'd get the 775dual-vsta. It should work fine with your card, as they're both pci express. Not an awesome board, but it should "tide you over."

    I've got that ASRock board. You aren't going to get much of an overclock with it if that is something you are shooting for, but other than that it seems to be a solid board. If the x1900GT will run down at PCIe-4x it will work, if it HAS to run at 16x it won't. That is the problem with the nVidia 8800s, they can't run at anything below 16x so they won't work in the ASRock board.
