EVGA GeForce 8800 GS 384MB GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card 384-P3-N851-AR
EVGA GeForce 8800 GS 384MB GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card 384-P3-N851-AR

Pros: Wonderfull card.

Cons: can't get folding at home to run on it... but that's not the card's fault.

Overall Review: MAKE SURE YOU GET "EVGA PRECISION UTILITY" AND SET THE FAN SPEED TO 50% AT A MINIMUM!!!! runs at 60c idle otherwise.

DONT SKIMP ON THE MOBO

GIGABYTE GA-EG31M-S2 LGA 775 Intel G31 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
GIGABYTE GA-EG31M-S2 LGA 775 Intel G31 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: well, it worked for a week or so...

Cons: After the one week was up, i started getting rounding errors in Prime 95. I've tested the memory for 4 hours with memtest, and i get 0 memory errors. Everything is running at stock speeds/voltages, HDD is good, and i have a 600 W power supply. All of this points to the motherboard. I'm debating whether to RMA , or just buy a better board.

Overall Review: Don't be fooled by all these other reviews, its hit and miss. you might get lucky, you might not. 2.4ghz quad core, 4GB 4-4-4-15 ram, an an EVGA 8800GS all wasted because i skimped on the motherboard. Take this as an example, and step up to a better board, it'll only help you in the long run.

Overall Review: running at 4-4-4-15 at 2.0 volts, it will probably hit 3-3-3 if you run it at 2.2 volts

GIGABYTE GA-EG31M-S2 LGA 775 Intel G31 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Wonderfull little board for the price. Good bios options for overclocking, VERY GOOD options for the memory. Overall VERY good.

Cons: when overclocking, the northbridge runs a tad bit hot. A small 40mm fan cools this to my liking however.

Overall Review: an AMAZING little board...
