it's really going to suck when you get your dream PC and it doesn't work because you got a Socket 754 Motherboard for a Socket 940 processor. Try the Asus SK8V Deluxe for the FX.

Hi, new to this forum, this may be nit-picky, but it will clear stuff up for me. Is PCI-X the same as PCI-EX (PCI express)? Or are they different?

Just one CPU? Only 1gig of ram? No SCSI? What about Dual display? 7.1 surround sound?

At the top of this thread, there is some buttons like a star and a printer. Click the one on the left.

well hey, i like the 2.1. that one is specifically the same, if not better, then a 5.1 set. anyways, its 2 gigs of ram if u looked at it correctly. anyways, i didnt include the OS, cuz i already have one. i dont count software in my rigs, cuz i already have em. screw dual display, since i have no point for them.

why would you want a value-oriented GMX speaker when the original Klipsch 2.1's are infiitely better?

oh, and best to combine the 9800 and TV tuner with the AIW 9800 Pro.
