is the Neo4 Platinum worth the extra $55..?
I'm planning to combine it with a an AMD 3200+ s939 but might up gettin the 3000+ ...some corsair xms ram... a gig's worth.. and a leadtek 6600gt.
so as you guys can see Imma on super budget, but I wanna get my moneyz worth and enjoy games such as far cry, d3, hl2.. etc... but at times I find it hard to justify spending over a $1200 for a $20 - $50. Since I've been playing games since 2nd grade starting with asteroids.. I gotta play the new stuff.
thanx for the advice everyone..paul
I actually just orderd and recieved the Neo 4 F version of the board your talking about. I think it will work just fine for gameing. Actually, you and I are in the same situation. I went with the "F" version because i have a sound card with a firewire port already on it and SATA II is not necessary now. Also as far as network connections go, I will be just fine with one. I don't plan on useing this rig for a router/server.
Another thing to keep in mind, is , is that you can add fire wire later and another nic card. So, since you are on a budget you can just spend the money later for the features you don't get now.
