Zathrus: Damn, new motherboards don't have AGP slots? Argh! But then, I don't buy the latest motherboards. I usually buy the ones that have been out like six months so I know they are stable, can use under Linux, etc.
Well now I don't feel completly out of the loop.
About 2 months ago I helped my brother (8 years my elder) pick parts for his rig and put it together for him.
I was at the local parts store just dumbfounded. Cuoldn't figure out why I couldn't find a MB to have my old Nvidia AGP card fit in there for him. He didn't need anything special since he isn't going to be playing the latest....took me the longest time to get the courage to ask (2 years out of the break fix world) and found out PCI Express. doh!
Now I want to build a rig with SATA/SATAII and PCI Express. Just go all out and see how much of a diff it makes. I am set for a new rig anyway. Only changes in 2 years has been vid card upgrade and some RAM.
Batman... Batman... Can somebody tell me what kind of a world we live in, where a man dressed up as a BAT gets all of my press?
