there are socket am2+ mobos already in the market with biostar and asus,why dont you suggest them?
and besides and is not 2 years behind,they are more than 2 years behind intel...why? look et the names of the archtecture itself...from k8 they jumped straight to k10 now...intel has been giving amd a hard time,and I dont see value in choosing an amd based sys at this point of time.grab a oc mobo and 2140,you can out do all amd anyday for six months.....
and regarding tft panels.... acer is a cheao altrnativ to view sonic....you get a 17" wide acer diaplay at 7500,which I think is a better buy than 17" 4x3 viewsonic.
but any way you have done an excellant job by putting in place the first post in this thred,now just keep it updated
There are countless after-market VGA coolers available today and many of them fail to provide any improvements over the standard coolers, serving more purpose as decorations rather than real cooling solutions.
