Best Motherboards

By jordanspcrepair ·
Hi,

I was wondering where is the best place online to buy motherboards?? I am on a tight budget, and i need one really bad. Will Socket A motherboards fade away?? I have a AMD Athlon XP 1800+ 1.53 GHz CPU for Socket A motherboard. I also have 384 MB PC2100 333Mhz DDR-SDRAM memory modules. i have a 40 gb IDE hard drive and a dvd burner, do you think my computer will be windows vista ready?

Like CM5400 already listed... www.newegg.com is a great company. Actually, the parent company is Acer, which is why they carry the entire Acer line of products. I have spent well over $40,000 in parts with newegg over the last 3 years, before that I was using www.mwave.com. Other favorites include... Monarch Computers and ZipZoomFly.com

You can still find Socket A motherboards around, but don't bother with any of the "extended warranty" plans as Socket A boards will soon be EVEN more harder to locate. If you want to use some of your existing hardware, before you upgrade, consider this the last go around with your Socket A CPU.

As far as brands of motherboard, I have always been an "enthusiast" (meaning I like to modify and tweak the **** out of my systems), and would buy the brands geared towards the enthusiasts... Abit & Asus primarily. DFI has recently won my dollars (ever since the nForce 4 chipset was released). There are many other brands available... best thing to do is find one that has become popular, and has a warranty. Never purchase, refurbished electronic equipment.
