    Well here is my problem......
    I am upgrading in a week or so and i have abt 18K cash in my pocket.
    i want to invest in a motherboard which is dual-core capable but i donot plan to buy a dual-core now due to high prices.
    Now i donot plan to invest in a graphix card now so lookin for onboard graphix on mobo but it shud have a PCI-e slot.
    i have searched various threads in the forum and found ASUS A8N-E a gud mobo but alas :( it has no onboard graphix.Now ASUS A8N-VM seems like a gud mobo but i want a mobo with gud overclockin facilities as well so does it fullfill my requirement :?:
    So which mobo shud i go for... donot want SLI or crossfire support...which is the best?heard MSI NEO4 PLATINUM(is tht its name :?: ) is also gud.
    And now abt the procy.
    As these mobos support 939 pin procesors the cheapest option available in market in AMD 3000+ for 5.5K.
    So if i invest in tht mobo i will have to ditch it next year losin my 5.5K bucks :shock:
    So if i invest in 3500+ do u think then i shud go in for dual-core next yr.means is there much difference b/w 3500+ and 3800+X2???

    I will get abt 35-40K next year so i dont want to waste my investment now.will buy graphix card next year.
    pls advise me on mobo and procy :wink:

    depends on wat ur needs are
    if u r some kinda gamer
    maybe ur hunger for higher end processors is understandable


    and ur query is real confusin

    frm wat i understand
    u wanna buy a Proc & Mobo now for 18k
    so i think u can still go for a 3500+ and a Asus a8n-vm-csm

    Well i am not a gamer but want my PC to be vista compatible.
    my need for higher end processors is only for future proofing coz i will not upgarde for 4 years after i upgrade next year.
    I want proc+mobo+ram for 18K now.

    i dont think the msi neo4 platinum has onboard gfx.

    u can go in for msi K8NGM2 series boards...they have inbuilt integrated 6100/6150 gpu and will work well with vista also.
