If you don't want all the extras, some MB only can be had as "OEM" or new bulk pack at newegg for a bunch less.
A good OCing inexpensive MB for a 939 is the Biostar "T Force 6100 939" for under $70 "RETAIL" with all the extras. That is if you don't want an SLI MB!!!
DO NOT confuse with the "NForce 6100"

MY BAD!
BRB

SLI
a few $s over budget but very good

The same but an "OEM" for a bunch less but you get no back I/O plate, cables etc... JUST the MB for $64!
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16813131517R
Or the "Premium" version in OEM for $75

Not OCing, they you have plenty of great less expensive options.
BTW, moderate OCing is not difficult to learn
Anyway, some good MBs for nonOCing MB in Retail box... $80-90 range
(Even though they can be OCed)

BTW, Out of Date, persay, yes. But lame and dead NO! They are still a very powerful platform!

I've been running this board for a few months as my backup rig (sold the main one for honeymoon money, that's why it's the sig rig now), with a pair of BFG 6600GT OCs, and it's worked flawlessly. For my money, it's a helluva buy. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a budget SLI rig.

The A8n-SLI Deluxe is a great board, especially for a hundred bones..you wont know what to do with all the extra cables..I had 10 usb 2.0 ports hooked up just because I could...and like The Duke said, moderate ocing is pretty easy, as long as you are able to use half of your brain.
post #10 of 19
For the money and the performance I dont think you can beat the board below. It is only 89.00 dollars and you recieve dual 16X width PCI-E. And if the ocing capabilities are anything like their nf41, then you will be able to hit 300+ FSB easy.
