So should I stay away from the ATI and Nvidia chipsets and just got with the Intel 965 or 975 with a PCI express video card?( I want to be able to connect to a desktop display and my Projector either HDMI or DVI)
I have also read that the 965 might have better memory performance than the 975 chipset is this still true?
I just want to make sure the the MB, Memory and PCI express video card are the right combo, because I see all of these pictures of MB with two video cards connected and it is a little confusing.
Is there a MB that uses the Nvidia Chipset but Doesn't have built in video? (meaning if I buy a Nvidia chipset MB, will I have to use an Nvidia PCI express card for video?)
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
