Its not for gaming is it? I definetely would not recommend a 5750 for gaming these days. You want to go for at least a 6600gt.

Agree with Jackup there, also I wouldn't recommend the ECS mobo, I'm not saying its a bad mobo.........it's just not the best. (I know u may not be going for the best quality parts but for not much more u can you get a nicer one.)

Yes, do not get an ECS motherboard.

The publicly said recently... "We do not use motherboard standard capacitors" Thats why they are so cheap. Avoid them like a naked Rosie O Donell.

As for the video card.. how about a 6600 vanilla?

Foxconn's are decent. Loads better than ECS. They specialize in making the retention brackets, and clips for motherboards. Recently they have been putting out their own mobos.

Gigabytes are sometimes cheaper than the rest... any gigabyte boards in that price range?

Why don't you go with 939 instead of 754? And I agree with jakUp, you need a 6 series card. They are around $100 if you look in the right places! :D

ECS is not the best board maker. I recommend you go with Asus or MSI instead.

If you're going to build a new computer, don't get S754 get S939 instead it has many advantages such as dual channel and future upgradeability.

Don't get a 5750 PCIE card, it will actually perform slower than your current FX5900XT, and furthermore all the FX cards perform kinda crappy especially in DX9 mode. If you need a cheap but powerful card, get a 6600GT instead ;). At the very very least get a regular 6600.

The 6200's are actually pretty decent cards for the price you pay. How do you identify which cards have unlockable pipelines?

any of them that are basd on the nv44a core, are "supposed" to be unable to be modded. if you want a 6200, get one based on the nv43 core. thats the one that is just a 6600 with software masks on the vertex/pixel shaders.

CHEVYMAN_02
05-08-05, 12:24 PM
oh ok. Will it say NV43 core in the specs?

zoomy942

yeah, but be sure to look around for reviews or anything like that, cause some companies use generic stats on their websites.
