That helps. I'm just looking for a basic, reliable mb for business
desktop use. It just needs to do a terminal, email, web, spreadsheet,
and word processor. The last one I got was a Biostar MCP6P-M2 GeForce
6150 Socket AM2 and I had a little trouble with the video resolution.
Ubu 8.10 did not readily recognize the video chip.
I'm cheap. I usually go for the lowest price, but I would pay a little
more to avoid such trouble.
