    Buying open box Mobo from Newegg

    I'm planning to buy this mobo from Newegg :


    Good or bad idea to go with open box? What does this include? Just the mobo, no backplate or wires or anything?

    How does the BenQ FP202W compare to other 20.1 inch widescreen displays from Dell like the 2007FP?

  5. Re: Is it worth upgrading from 7800GT to 7900GT?

    Another vote for saving your £'s. With AM2 a few weeks away, you're going to have to spring for a new mobo, Ram (DDR2 is expensive!), and processor to keep your comp on the top of technology. Put...

    I'm actually looking to have a very similiar (if not exactly the same build). What HS/F did you use in the box? My goal is to have a good performing (3000+, X800 XL Radeon) PC in the smallest and...

    Re: Passively cooled Mobo

    I've actually been looking towards going the mATX route just to enjoy a smaller case. It seems the MSI K8NGM2-FID is the consensus pick as the best Geforce 6150 mobo out there. I don't need the...

    Looking to build HTPC

    I'm looking to build a home theatre PC but also in a small form factor. The mobo I have is a micro ATX so I might as well make the PC mobile for the fun of it.
