Question Upgrading (Need advice)
Hi, here's my current config

Intel Celeron D 331 (2.66GHz)
Intel 865GSA
Kingston 256 + 512 MB DDR ram (400 MHz)
Inno3d Geforce MX4000 64 MB (32-bit)

im thinking of upgrading...but i have limited options


- Asus P5KPL-VM (Has Intel GMA3100...this isnt X3100 by any means)
- Asus P5N-MX (Has nForce 610i / Geforce 7050)

- Asus P5GC-MX
- Asus P5GV-MX
- Asus P5S-MX SE
- Asus P5SD2-VM

Now if i buy Any motherboard from Group A, I cannot buy a used Nvidia 6600LE 128 MB 64-Bit PCX card, and i will share 256 MB of my 1 GB corsair XMS (667 mhz)

So, please suggest which would be better performance?
- the nforce chipset one
- the gma3100 one
- or any board in grp B with 6600 LE, if u can...then also tell which board in grp be is better (if u suggest this option)

also, although i am sure all these mobo's support my processor (celeron D 331), please confirm this too

also, please tell me which of these boards has the best audio quality (or codec) coz i use an old amp from line-out (doesnt have spdif)

My hdd is western digital SATA ... but ide support wud be great too

also will i be able to have a tv-out with the nforce board?
i notice some of them have Gb lan or Mb, wudnt make too much difference for me

plz note that this pc will not be for gaming...i just use photoshop n stuff...just a casual upgrade, but i wud like to have bang for buck thats y im asking

thanks A lot!
