This is my first build ever. I've taught myself a buncha stuff and have some good people advising me (non-musician techy guys) but now I wanna ask recording.org..... What are we looking for in a mobo? Or...what makes a good DAW motherboard??? I've picked out a bunch of LGA775 Intel boards with big FSBs and dual-channel DDR2 RAM support. They've all got at least 2 PCI's and some PCI-E's, 3GB/s SATA drive handling, and plenty of USB and Firewire ports for peripherals. What else do I need to look for in a motherboard? Can I get a good one for around $100? What are the DAW builders here running on and what did you spend? BTW...I was thinking of starting off Pentium D (820 or 915) and then going C2D within a few/6 months or so. THANKS!!!
