Suggestions for mobo

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Yo,

I've just upgraded my machine and have a Q6750 and 4GB of DDR2, a Asus Xonar card spare and was thinking i might build a HTPC, keeping the cost pretty low hopefully...

Can anyone suggest a good LGA775 DDR2 board?

I'll probably pick up a 1GB GT210 for video output?

thanks....

ASRock G31M-S R2.0 good little board will do what you want 8gb of ram max but 4 will be plenty.

and the card you said is ideal or a 512mb 8800gt would be fine for 1080p videos

If you want something small which you probably do for your HTPC ,
why not give this a try: ASUS P5G41T-M LX

I had one really similar to this one and it handle my overclocked q9550 at 3.8Ghz no problem.
Also if that sound card is PCIe x1 then this board has you covered.
