AM2/AM2+ Motherboards

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I know these boards are "Old and outdated" by todays standards.. But I really don't care. I have an AMD Athlon X2 2.80Ghz CPU, 4 GB DDR2 RAM, And a good video card but am in need of a motherboard that will fit my parts. I can't post in the For sale / Wanted section because I don't have 35 Rep. Really, I've been on this site for a while and I haven't really posted anything worth getting rep. I don't have a crazy-modded computer / cases, and whenever I've built a computer I never felt it was good enough to post here. But anyways.

What's a good brand of motherboard that's affordable, That will, As stated above work with AMD Athlon X2 2.80Ghz AM2 CPU, DDR2 RAM (Must have 4 slots, since all my sticks are 1GB) have atleast one PCI Slot and fit inside a Medium ATX case? I don't need something that's super crazy expensive gamers dream, But something that'll let me stretch the legs of my AMD CPU abit, and be stable and affordable.

Because my Dell (See Signature) board died and it's out of warranty, The CPU, RAM, Videocard, PSU / Harddrives all tested fine in my dads PC, so the board is dead.


PS: It'd also be nice if it had a PCI-E 8x slot or Daul PCI-E 16x slot so I can use my Dell SAS card with 15k RPM drive.

ASUS M2N series is good. The board itself is over 4 years old now but boy is it compatible with a lot. I started with a similar CPU like yourself and I've currently got a Phenom II 965. It technically doesn't even support this chip either, ha.
