Ok, so over the last month I have done about 50 hours of overtime at work so I am going to put that to a significant computer upgrade. I just have a couple of questions.
I am thinking of getting an Intel core 2 Duo processor (probably the E6700). The thing is that I have an AMD at the moment so I will be doing a motherboard swap too. The motherboard I am thinking of is the Asus P5B Deluxe
. Ok, here come the questions:
1) Is this a good motherboard and can anyone offer any alternative better ones?
2) At the moment I have a Geforce 7600gt, but will be wanting to upgrade in a few months to maybe a 8800GTX, will this board support it?
3) The board has an integrated sound card (like most), would it be worth getting a separate soundcard and do they offer any sort of performance upgrade? (MY pc is connected to about £1000 worth of hi-fi, but the hi-fi is a music hi-fi, so only has 2 speakers.)
4) I am going to be buying 2gb of RAM as I consider that to be a minimum for gaming, bearing in mind I am running Vista Ultimate, would it be worth getting 4gb?
Thanks in advance and sorry about all the questions. I built my computer myself so have a very good idea how things work, it's just the choosing and compatibility that is a bit challenging.
