#$^(%#^ Need New MB So my MB NIC died tonight for no apparent reason... Looking for a new MB. Low end, I never use the fancy features. PCI-e, LAN, sound, SATA, Socket 939 and 4 DIMMs, optional on the SLI. What chipsets and brands are good these days? PS I'm running off an ancient 10 mbps NIC I had in the junk box for now. PPS Thanks to all those here who have discussed backing up your wpa.dbl file over the years. When the NIC died the Activation Nazi decided I had a cracked copy of windows and gave me three days to re-activate by phone. Which would have meant 2 phone reactivations in the next week (temperoray NIC and then new MB) which MS would probably have denied. Using a wpa.dbl from my last MB change killed the Nazi.
