    mobos with onboard video are almost always very poor for overl****ing. You would be much better off getting a decent mobo and a cheap agp video card

    with that said, I would recomend just about any mobo with the nforce2 chipset such as the ASUS A7N8X Dx or Epox 8RDA3+
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    I agree, get a good non-vga nForce2 mobo (I recommend the EPoX EP-8RDA3+ myself) and a separate video card (a mininum of a GF4 Ti4200, oh sure it's not DX9 compliant but it kicks the **** outa onboard GF4 MX offerin's which are only DX7 compliant).

    What about the Epox 8RDA+ , the soltek NV400-l64 or the Asus A7N8X-X, and i dont need the dual channel DDR. Im on a real tight budjet, ant yes i would like a Ti-4200 (200$Ca) but i can only afford something like the Fx5200 or the radeon 9200 (100$ Ca).
    THX for the help! :thumb:

    Ti4200 can be had for $100 US.

    FYI the FX5200 is the same speed as a MX440, its nothing special, and certainly not worth it when you can get the Ti4200 that blows it away for only a few $ more, sometimes even the same price.

    FX5900 - 3DMark2001 [20,566] - 3DMark2003 [7,281] - Aquamark3 [56,694]
    Ti4400 - 3DMark2001 [16,028]

    Cheers to that. Dont spend your money on crap cause you want something right away. Wait, save your cash, and buy some good stuff that you wont be disappointed with. Switching from a 5200 to a Ti4200 is, at max, $50 more, but the playability and over clocking you get out of the Ti4200 far exceeds $50. Go with a non Graphics Intergrated board and with the saved cash start towards a Ti4200. Good luck O/cing, : peace2: Mista K6
