Well, since my old mobo pooped out on me after a bad BIOS flash, I'm looking for a new one...

 

I was thinking of the DFI LanParty 250GB, but I need to know of others...

 

What should I get???

MSI NEO platinum .... By far the best 754 board

i gotta know.. is Best Buy going to build it for you this time too? :blink:

Only thing I'll need help with is installing the processor, that's why I had them put it together.

 

Other than that, I have everything covered.

 

I'll give builiding it myself a shot though, it'll save me $50

The only part I will have trouble with is installing the processor, so you can expect a thread when it gets here.

 

I would've gotten it today, but my dad had to go to my uncle's funeral, so he couldn't sign for it.

 

It should be here tomorrow though.

having problems installing the processor? :blink: Thats like the easiest part to install. Line up the pins with the holes, don't force it in, it will go in easily when done right, clamp it closed, and viola, your done :)
