Hi all,

I'm ready to do an end-of-year system upgrade for my VT3 edit computer. My current motherboard is an Intel 850.

Can someone please tell me what the hottest recommended set-up is for a new Motherboard and Processor?

Thanks.

How much money are you going to spend? If less then I would go with a MSI motherboard because it has dynamic overclocking. When the cpu usage gets up to 100% the montherbaord overclocks the cpu a little to give you an extra push. Then I would get a 3.2ghz intel.


If more i would get MSI or ASUS for the AMD fx-51, the fx-51 is 1000 bucks but in the lightwave benchmark at tomshardware.com it beats the 3.2ghz EE.

And if your doing a budget system the high end of the xp line looks O.K.
