Help me decide on a motherboard

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I'm currently trying to purchase a motherboard that goes with the processor
Intel Core 2 Duo E6300(1.86GHz)

I was wondering if someone can find me the BEST and most STABLE motherboard with the LOWEST price as possible. I think someone has researched on that already. I am in no need of overclocking needs. Just stability and will work without much technical problems like burning, or explosions.

Thanks in advance.

Any specific features you need (such as RAID?)

Here is an mATX board with onboard video:
ASUS P5L-MX Socket T (LGA 775) Intel 945G Micro ATX $75.99

More perferences, Non MICRO ATX boards. I kind of need -VM Video and Multimedia, but if not able, recommend me a video card too. The person isn't much of a gamer, but needs multitask, and medium intensity of game. Budget is around ~150$

With onboard video, and ATX format:

GIGABYTE GA-965G-DS3 Socket T (LGA 775) Intel G965 Express $144.99

If dedicated card, the Biostar I listed before will do fine for $82.99 and then something like this ASUS EAX1300PRO/TD/256M Radeon X1300PRO 256MB GDDR2 as video card for $68.99

Will a 350 Watt PSU support the processor and mother board with a 320GB HD SATA? Also 1 CD/DVD Rom.

It should. Unless it's a really crappy generic one
