    Need advice on new motherboard

    Right now I am looking at 2 boards.

    Gigabyte GA-7ZXR Athlon /Duron Motherboard

    Gigabyte GA-7ZX Athlon /Duron Motherboard

    I am looking for best value, as well as future upgradability options. Let me know your opinion of which one I should get! Keep in mind, the prices are in Canadian dollars. Also, if you know of any Canadian sites where I can order similar boards, please let me know!

    If it aint broke, don't fix it, cuz then it will be broke, and you won't be able to fix it.

    If you're going to use DDR RAM, I recommend the Abit AG7. I don't know much about Socket A Gigabyte mobos, but I've heard they are good.

    However, this is in the wrong forum, it will probably be moved to the motherboards forum where you will get a better response.

    Yes, this forum is for feedback/suggestions about Hardware Central, not about users' hardware, so this topic moves to the Motherboards forum ... thanks!
