Need a motherboard

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I need a mother board for a amd x4 955. Here are the other parts i have all i lack is the mobo. i have 2x2gig ddr3 ripjaws 1600mhz ram, a gtx 460 768mb video card, a soundblaster audigy 2 zs gamer sound card and a coolmaster 650 wat power supply. Keep in mind all my parts are bought except the mother board. I also will be running windows 7 64 bit pro. I would like to do a mild overclock on the chip to maybe 3.6-3.8 ghz. I will also be ordering a 212 cpu cooler for it. I have looked at motherboards till iam sick and cannot figure out what i need. My budget for the board is 100 bucks total so the cheaper the better. Looking at this mobo

asus makes a very nice OC "able" mini ATX motherboards, there's some mid range onse as well. some of them you can snatch up for 99 bucks on newegg. i have always used asus. there are many other good brands as well. just one guys opinion. there core unlockers are very easy and nice as well. i built a small gaming rig for my wife and we turned a phenom II x2 into an X4 just by pressing a button, after running prime95 for 1 day it was completely stable too. so it was well worth it
