When I go to disable onboard sound the motherboard freezes up on NVRAM check, that is the problem with disabling onboard sound. I'm getting a lot of stuttering on playing audio on occasion. I figure its the onboard sound card causing issues.

I'll also get a stutter on my mouse like it will cut out slightly and come back. The other symptom is when the machine goes to sleep it won't wake bac...

The 8800GT is the on Nvidia using the small size, think 65 nm or was it 95nm now? Its much better on power than the other 8800's and its similar or bette...

Just because something is good on paper doesn't necessarily means it works in real world. Mind you, this is from a Newegg review, a similar mATX board from Asus has extremely high wattage requirements to work right. An end user quoted from tech support as needing 800 Watts. Newegg Reiview Pros: The ...

It really depends on your preference. I normally go with Asus as a brand and pay a slight bit more than other companies. The only reason I went with the Asus was I know from reviews it works with the new 45nm processors out of the box. I didn't read up on the Gigabyte board. Look it up on newegg the...

Newegg or Tigerdirect. If you live near a MicroCenter or want it mailed they are actually slightly better for prices for pick up or availability on parts.

When I get back from vacation I'll post on my media center/gaming build I built out with the NSK2480. This is my build and I'd suggest it be followed if you want a 45nm gaming rig that is Linux and Vista compatible w/ 1 pci, 1 pci-16 and 2 pci-express cards allowing a e-sata and extremely capable of...

P5E-VM HDMI power requirement

I'm building a system out with the P5E-VM motherboard. I've read a few reviews on a similar mATX board (P5K-VM one reviewer at Newegg listed it the board requiring a PSU supplying 3.3V@28A,5V@30A,12V@18A.) from Asus with rather high power boot up requirements. I went to the Asus site and the power r...
