Firstly I dont know where go for 754 or 949 bit in a AMD64 2.8. I wouldnt be looking at upgrading for at least 5-8 years. Then my next dilema is which mother to get.(dont want top of the range) price is a factor.
My main aim is do some digital edit with my camcorder and to connect a nice surround system to play cd. I would like a mother that already has firewire and that doesnt have issues with overheating.
I want build the PC myself so I can learn more about them.
Do 754's and 949 use the samemotherboards or do u need use the correct socket to suit the processor socket.
