Well, I haven't put the new system with the ASUS A7V333 MB yet, but I do have a relative using the ASUS NVIDIA A7N266 MB that uses the nForce chipset. It is a very good performer for the money, about $120 for the one with a decent video. For that MB, you willl need twin sticks of DDR ram to take full advantage of the nForce chipset. It's onboard video performs about the same as a Geforce2 MX card. The reason is because it uses the system RAM for its video RAM. Thisi a great solution for playing yesterday's games or doing or non 3-D graphics applications , but not for today's system hogging games like Morrowwind and some of those 1st person shooters.bowhunter4us said:Let me know how you like that board and how it performs cause thats the one i was thinking of getting or the nvidia gaming one.
Yes... but if that one chip happens to die.. then it's dead... along with your system until you get a new one... plus it'll be cheaper to do 2 individual pieces.... It's up to you.... thats a tough choice.... good luck with the new PCDer Robe said:Perfomance difference i dont think so at least a noticable one. But as far as two or one I would go for one becuase it leaves you with room for another.
