I will be making all my purchases at tigerdirect.com so please keep that in mind. I have a 400$ish spending limit. PLEASE if you think there is a better choice then what I have selected and it's in the same price range please point it out on tigerdirect.com only please. Thanks.
This pc will be used for slight gaming which I think the 8800GT is enough, and just everyday stuff. I don't plan on overclocking cuz I don't know much about it, lol.
These are my parts that I have:
LSP Ultra 550w ATX
NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT
Since the PC is only being used for slight gaming, as you said, you won't need SLI. Get a Gigabyte mobo instead, something like an EP45-UD3P. With that said, you won't need that DDR3 ram, so get a good set of G Skills or something like that. They're all fine, since you're not overclocking anyway.
That is alot of motherboard for your purposes, and if it weren't such a low price, I would definitely direct you toward a cheaper p45 board (which ar crossfire capable) that uses the cheaper ddr2 memory such as the gigabyte ud3 mentioned by infiniti, which would allow you save some cash for a GPU upgrade (or a PSU upgrade)- especially if you have some DDR2 memory around. However, if the idea of SLI (as opposed to crossfire) really turns your crank, and you don't have DDR3, the board is a good price, and EVGA has great service and warranty- If you do go for this board, though, I would recommend using an aftermarket CPU cooler and overclocking it- it's wasted performance otherwise. You could learn how to OC, and crank up the CPU to a modest degree wihin an hour. Good luck
