    I have my new mobo on the way and I am wondering what else I need to get. What are the onboard gfx and sfx like? I am pricing a GeForce MX440 card do I need it? I am prolly getting a 2100+ and I will be playing Q3A, Warcraft 3, Total Annihilation, and Diablo 2.

    the a7n8x doesn't have onboard video. only nforce2 boards with the IGP northbridge have that which is about equal to a gf4 mx440, i think . most have the SPP though, like the a7n8x, and no onboard video.

    if you're going to be playing 3d games, i suggest something with a little more oomph. also something with at least dx8 hardware support. the mx440 is a dx7 card and essentially a gf2. go for a gf3 or gf4 ti4200.

    the a7n8x's onboard sound will be fine for you, i believe.
