    i am thinking about building a pc, and i have no clue what mobo to get. i either want a p4 for an amd64bit cpu. what mobos have pci express, or other features i should be looking for?
    even a like to a website that reviews mobos would be great

    I don't think there are any Athlon64 PCI express mobos out yet

    (but that doesn't mean you shouldn't buy one)

    Reviews and benchmarks on CPUs, Motherboards, video cards, and the list goes on...............

    BTW, if you go with amd 64 make sure to get the 739pin versions, they're uber..er, other ones are going extinct.

    I have it... It's decent. I'm not the biggest fan of the BIOS as it compares to my old P4 board, but what are you gonna do? That and I broke the onboard sound, but I should have bought a sound card anyway.

    i had an asus mobo on my old computer and it did fine(didnt build it) but on this new one i just built i just have a bad feeling about it, it seems like the parts dont all work together very well. if i had to do it again i wouldnt get an asus id get an MSI i think or wait for those nforce4s
