[qanda]This thread is about the Antec MX-1 Actively Cooled Hard Drive Enclosure. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]What is the best barebones system today? Amd? Pentium? or intel mobos? Had an Asus mobo w/3.2 ghz pentium 1.5 mb DDR and board just fried. Had to reset Cmos after removing new memory sticks (been active 2+ yrs). Crusting and swelling caps on mobo. Looking for the best mobo/barebones system to trxfer my old hardware to a new system. Had a HP m1080n but upgraded the firmware of 2 dvd roms to accomplish fast movie reproduction. Also just intalled win Vista on top of 2000 OS after flashing drive, resetting bios config and installing new 500 gb HD. Still cant find drivers for SATA controller on mobo, and getting frustrated. I want/need new system but dont know which barebones kit to start from. BTW I am a poor broke sunnavabitsh and want the best system for the best price that I can upgrade 5 years from now. Any suggestions or personal fav's are appreciated.
