    Neither. I recommend you get a motherboard with Socket 939 instead, unless you already have the CPU...

    As VB said, socket 939. Also, the newer MBs will have the faster SATA connector (3.0Gb/s as oppose to 1.5Gb/s).

    I'd reccomend getting atleast a 9800 or even an nvidia 6600GT (200$ ) , if you have the extra money , because 9600 will become out of date real soon.

    That would depend on if the computer is for gaming or not.


    You could save yourself quite a bit of money if you choose the 3000+ or 3200+ (939 pin) 90nm.

    I have the MSI K8T Neo2-FIR and I'm very happy with it.

    Do you have a link to the site? Some here might see some changes to make, and would get a price idea. Its almost as much fun giving advice as buying the setup. Someone like me who whats too but can't afford yet.
