Hi all,


I am still new to these forums, but have been doing a lot of reading and research. I have put together what I would like to build using Leopard 10.5.2. Any comments/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Here is my potential build.

Hi, I'm interested in doing a new build as well.


I've seen a lot of recommends for the P5W DH, but this Gigabyte motherboard seems to be a bit newer and has more SATA ports.


I've just started reading thru this forum. I am wondering what the recommended install method would be for this board and say a Nvidia 7300?
