I'm about to purchase a new Intel-based PC, and am looking into purchasing
the "Asus P5S800-VM" motherboard:
I'm going to use the PC only for going on the net, and photo editing on
photoshop, so as you can see i don't exactly need a "power" system.
While we're at it, what differentiates a high end MOBO from a low end one?
The price difference between this mobo and the other upper end mobos is so
crazy.... Does a better MOBO perform better, or does it just offer better
customizing options? i mean, does a high-end mobo make :
- a faster system?
- a more stable system ?
- a more reliable/durable system ?
all in all, do you think i should buy this mobo if i want a good system that
will last me a long time (~5 years)?
thanks for your answers

with pretensions of speed. The video is proprietary
Other than that it's a low end board with only 2 memory slots.
It's not very upgradeable, but should be reliable. A higher end
board would have more PCI slots, PCI express video, more
memory slots, faster LAN.
