how's novatech as a manufacturer? Want my graphics card from them:
And just to check, I'm hopeful that this is the correct motherboard:
http://www.novatech.co.uk/novatech/specpage.jsp?GIG-5CDS3R, although I
was hoping for an nForce one. Could someone pick me a decent one please,
as I really have no idea who makes good hardware etc. Needs to be: about
£100, support DDR2 (and possibly 3), minimum 4GB ram and be socket 775

Thankyou :D
