hey guys One fine day my loyal Via based p4 motherboard deceived me with a series of blue screen after battling with it for four days i decided to give up . So i went in search of a motherboard that will support my existing NVIDIA riva tnt2 card and all other add on cards which were in my previous motherboard and my processor being a P4 1.5 ghz . so being in chennai there is only one destination for techno needs Ritchie street . So i asked the first dealer for a VIA based P4 motherboard he came up with Two options which i dont remember now . so i told him that ill be back in another fifteen minutesd and went in search of more options . I entered a small shop which shelved lot of pheriperals ,i went in and asked the dealer for a VIA based motherboard . the reply was negative so i asked him to show other motherboards of Intel chipsets . he showed me ASROCK 945 chipset motherboard for rs 2500 when i told him that my processor is a pentium 4 1.5 ghz with a crooked smile came the reply that it doesnot support my processor . Afetr some exhaustive search i found a big and busy shop . i went in and placed my query ." I have a Intel 845 pesv" box packed came the reply and that too for 1800 rs . but no warranty because intel has stopped support for these motherboards . with no toher option left i went for the INTEL PESV motherboard which had 4 back panel usb 2.0 ports and two front panel usb ports and it had six pci slots and one AGP 4X interface . So i went for the INTEL 845PESV motherboard for 1800 rs which now sits comfortably inside my cabinet perfectly compatible with verything i had . It even supported my Friends P4 2.8 ghz processor . So tell me guys . did i make a wise move . or have i become a prey for the dealers plan .
