you pretty much get what you pay for. a major brand likely has more support than an unknown brand. but if you have little funds, then you can probably balance it out depending on how much knowledge you have to fix it yourself if it breaks.

Buy the better mtrbd. as you can grow with it. The cpu costs will go down and that high priced cpu will be in reach and probably even a better one at the same cost you may have had to pay for it earlier. A good mtrbd. usually supports its end users with bios updates that can use later cpu and memory and/or new devices with greater ease. Its been my experience to keep a mtrbd, and then go thru 2 cpus before I replace the mtrbd. I just think you'll get more bang for the buck with the mtrbd. choice.

good luck -----Willy

Can anyone please tell me a website that can tell me how to change jumper settings and a manual for a gigabite motherboard model number GA586ATE

a bios i found

that's about all i found that's useful. i'd go ahead and email the one guy who says he has a manual. see if he still has it.
