Hi does any body know of any places that can supply socket 478 motherboards. We have used up all our spares units and are struggling to source any more.
Our boards are intel so if some knows of any place where we can find some of these boards, i would be extremely greatful (helps in ghosting) BUT we will be able to make do with alternative brands
if i get a result i will add another fiver to the 20 quid i am going to donate to the life saving site!
any body heard of SearchMash.com? launched by google!
Bluepoint (www.bluepoint.net) who are based in MK - and we use for peripherals - have some on their site. They're due some AS Rock Skt-478 P4I65G boards in shortly, but at £29.65 (+VAT) they're not cheap...
Or maybe 29.65 is cheap:
I should also add that they do Intel D845GERG2 Socket-478 boards at a whopping £57.95 a pop!
Even eBuyer can help you out here:
I bought some of these boards from ComputerCommodities.com. I was struggling to find some also. Plus I needed specifically microATX.Originally Posted by indiegirl
Are they ones that take SD RAM or DDR?
If its the former we have plenty of spares
If its the latter we will have some spares but probably only 1 or 2 now
dont spose anyone knows where you can get an asus P4P800 E Deluxe socket 478 motherboard from ?
I aint checked out ebay yet ( So I am aware of ebay ) but was wondering if there was anwhere that did those boards new ?
yeah that one I dont see the buy it now or add to basket button(s) where did they go to ?
Dunno seeing as it says in stock thats a bummer.
Get a different one ;-)
I would get a different one but I dont want an as rock cos I heard bad things about them and if I upgrade to one that has PCI E then I have to upgrade my graphics card, ram, cpu etc etc and I would much prefer to just get an iMac then go through all the upgrading again.
I basically just wanted a motherboard that would be able to use the RAM and graphics card and cpu I have.
If it's just to use your existing stuff it wouldn't be *that* bad.
And by the way- you*do* know who ASROCK are a spinoff from...
"Who is ASRock? ASRock is a spin-off company created by the well-known ASUS to compete with the more "price sensitive" market, i.e. system/OEM sector. Asus is quite clever in doing so, as they do not have to "lower" their position in order to compete with ECS and the likes. ASRock K7S41GX is the successor to their previous model, K7VM4, based on Via KM400 chipset. Let us see how SiS741 chipset improves upon the proven integrated K7 solution."
So buy an ASROCK and get to use your hardware (read: it'll at least work). And from what I have read they really are pretty good for budget level motherboards.
