    Default Advice on New Motherboard

    My current system is three years old and just recently I had my AGP video
    card die on me. This got me to thinking about a new system. I have had good
    history with Gigabyte and was hoping the group could recommend a new
    motherboard?

    I don't need a gaming system as I will be running Office and Digital Camera
    applications. However I do want a system that hums. My new system will have a
    1tb internal, 1tb esata drive, 4gigs of memory. I'm not sure what video card
    to get yet, so I would welcome any advice in that regard also.

    What I'm confused about is what CPU and chipset I should go with and what
    type of video card interface should be on the motherboard.

    Lets say you dont want any of your old components,and have no interest in overclocking,
    A proprietary system would be the easiest,medion,dell,hewlett packard etc.
    If you want your "own system" tho maybe post a budget.Im sure lots here could post "If I won the lottery" suggestions otherwise.

    Asrock p67 Extreme6.............. Gigabyte EP-45 UD3 ...................... Gigabyte 73 PVM S2
    Intel i5 2500k 4.8ghz................ Intel Q8400 3.8ghz......................... Intel D820 2.8ghz

    You can build a fire breathing dragon on that budget and get a new monitor
