Which of these 2 mobos is recommended? The Asrock has 4 PCI slots and\nthe Asus has 2. But the Asus supports SATA 3 Gb/s where the Asrock is\n\n1.5.\n\nAny thoughts/suggestions? I just bought a new AGP video card so I do\nnot want to buy a PCI Express card, and I still want to use my ATA 133\n(IDE) HD and these boards support both AGP and PCI Express (for when I\nupgrade). I have been pricing barebones systems with these 2 mobos\nwith an Intel 820 CPU (along with heat sink and case fans...but no\nother hardware at this time). Memory I'll buy on Ebay, and\nslickdeals.net to find a SATA hard drive when I need one.\n\n\nWhat web sites do you prefer for buying a barebones system? I do not\nfeel comfortable putting a system together myself, and don't know how\nmuch I'd save anyway. I am comfortable installing hardware, though.\n\nI understand the Asrock supports dual channel memory, yet the Asus\npci-e slot runs at 16x where the Asrock runs at 4x.\n\nSince I will someday upgrade to pci-e and use my machine for games,\nwhich is better...the memory or the pci-e slot?
