Nice! Oh, wait... if I get new GFX card now, it won't fit to new MB like this! And if I get PCI-e version of GFX card, it wont fit into current MB!
I hate incompatible products... [:@]

Dont worry too much,Cooler!

You have 2 options:

1. Buy both (Graphic card & Motherboard) with PCI-express. In that case I would recommend You to wait a little longer till prices drop a bit...because PCI-Express-es speeds and everything currently arent that much better than of AGP8x (or even 4x)...[;)]


2. Buy Your GFX (or whichever card You want to buy) in AGP 8x version...and play it on Your current mobo (AGP 4x if my memory serves me well!?)...because its not worth to buy AGP 8x mobo just for that card to take full effect (there are only few % - some 5% actually - difference between the two of them)...

I would wait if I were You...and dont worry...there will always be better and faster graphics and even if You buy the latest ones...and spend whole fortune for a year or will become grumpy old peace of S***... [8D] better wait and go for some best buy option (in price/performance ratio).


Cooler -> RE: Gigabyte GA-K8VT890-9 : A New Motherboard On K8T890 ! (12/10/2004 12:52:44 AM)

Yeah... "buy both", you say. On your expense, perhaps?

My point of getting new MB is not only because of GFX speeds, but USB2, SATA, FULL support for my new memory, etc. [;)]

Unfortunately, it's impossible for me to save money - Either I use it to get something usefull... or I'll spend everything for food, drinks and other "volatile" pleasures, before even realizing it. [8D][:D]

So... as you see, I must get my upgrades when I have at least some money left. Problem is, I never have enough at the same time to make bigger upgrades, so I'll have to live with smaller ones. [:(]

SiliconFreak -> RE: Gigabyte GA-K8VT890-9 : A New Motherboard On K8T890 ! (12/10/2004 11:37:31 AM)

Yeah...I could borrow You some much do You need? And how much interests do I get back and when? [8D][:D]

No seriously...I would recommend You to buy only graphic card now (as You said You will)...and it will work in Your current configuration...then maybe later buy new MB...huhhh...but the problem is...that if Your GFX will be AGP...then the next MB should be also (or You would need to change Graphic card again [:@])...and for the RAM support and everything else there will be no problems i believe...[;)]

So the only problem I see is graphic card support...but i guess You will figoure it out somehow...[:)]

I would ask You only one more thing...what kind of CPU will You put on this new MB? Because to get best results from RAM and everything else...You would need at least 3Ghz P4...or some AMD 3000+....which once again costs certain ammount of hard earned money...[:@]

Like I said few times already...this upgrading is like neverending story...You could have the best, fastest and newest computer today....but tommorow (or at least in some year or so) would be only some average peace of jun*....[;)]

Sad but true...[8|]

Cya around...need to runnnnnnn...bye.[:)]

If local retailer here still has no GFX card I want at tuesday or wednesday, I could get CPU (AMD64?) and MB. Updating GFX card could then happen in January... and in february I could get more HD space... and... eargh! I want patience... RIGHT NOW! [:D]

Ok... I know in few days. But until then, I can only dream about updates. [8D]

SiliconFreak -> RE: Gigabyte GA-K8VT890-9 : A New Motherboard On K8T890 ! (12/12/2004 12:46:54 PM)

Dream a little dream...[:)]

Dont worry...You'll get Your card tomorrow...then won the lottery the day after...and buy 10 new rigs with best 64bit CPU's on Wednesday....PATIENCE MY FRIEND, PATIENCE...[:)][:D][;)]

EDIT : I just forgot...since You are from Finland...You have Kimi Raikonnen there...and he is known to be real party man...drink alot and maybe he could invest in Your gaming rig...and You buy him few Fosters...and Voilaaaa...compensation is finished...[:)][:D][;)]

Cooler -> RE: Gigabyte GA-K8VT890-9 : A New Motherboard On K8T890 ! (12/15/2004 8:44:07 AM)

I did not get my GFX card, as no retailer seemed to be able to get one for me. [:(]

MB & CPU will have to be enough for a month or so... [&:]

Kimi Räikkönen? I don't know him personally (I don't even like any of that F1 stuff!) , but as far as I know, he is a bit of a party animal! [:D]

/me continues making back-ups...
