I'm building my first computer. So far I have an Antec 900 case, Antec NeoPower 650Blue PSU, a WD 500GB SATAII 16MB HD, an AMD A64X2 6000 3.0GB processor, ASUS 18X DVD+/-R DVD Burner, and a Skythe Kama Meter.
I plan on ordering a generic CD ROM drive, two BFG 7950 256MB Video cards (one at a time as the budget permits), a 2 GB of Corsiar XMS2 DDR2 800 PC2 6400 RAM kit, a WD Raptor 75GB 10,000 rpm HD, and another WD500GB HD set for RAID 1. I plan on using MS Windows XP PRO/SP2 as the OS. I've ordered all components from New Egg and am very satisified so far.
My problem is I am having a difficult time selecting the approiate motherboard for this system. I have looked and looked at different boards, read the reviews and specs but I am still not sure which board is right for me. I do not plan on overclocking and will use the system primarilary for gaming and possibly some light video editing. I am willing to spend up to $200+ for the right board.
Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated,
Thanks in advance, RicoRay.
