then customer service shouldnt be an issue. anyway also asrock do usually give better value for money. tbh customer service has never ever helped me. posting in forums so much less hassle and faster.
When you need to RMA a dead motherboard customer service is everything...
Not saying Asrock is crap, but I wouldnt usually use Asrock boards if I was building a PC for someone else.
hmm yer you are right. ram is 3 year to lifetime, HD i have no idea, my CPU is 1 year but i thijnk that is because they are OEM and gfx card for me is 1 year. y parts have never EVER failed on me so i have no need for warranties
Hey, im in the process of gettin a new pc and was looking at the new intel dualcore processors but ive found the amd athlon 64 dualcore processor to be a lot cheaper so i could get a higher speed for cheaper but is that because they're not as good as intel? thanks
trust me the Core duo will kill the turion. Ghz dont mean very much tbh. Look at benchmark scores and you will see core duo killing turion. Also the problem is that windows 64bit is very buggy and very few applications work on it. isnt the core duo 64 bit as well???
Turion x2s are able to compete with core 2 duos, but the problem is that they ahvent seen the price cuts AMDs desktop processors have had. So core 2 duo(merom) is always better value for money for laptops.
As for 64bit OSs, the 64bit version of Vista is a huge improvement from what ive read. However, the migration to 64bit processors wont happen for a while due to so many processors out there that dont have amd64 or em64t, including processors as recent as the yonah core.
Windows XP x64 is quite sufficient. Unecessary for nearly every user, but perfectly stable (more so than XP Pro aamof, because it's based on Server 2003 code) and with minimal compatbility issues (though I can't run my newly purchased X-Wing on it ).
