Good, Budget Mobo for a Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Trying to upgrade a bit from my Intel Pentium and 13 year old Intel Mobo. Though I'd go AMD now, and from what I've read, a Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition is one of the true AMD Quad Cores, good for a budget too.

Don't really know anything yet about the AMD Mobo's.

Any thoughts on this Mobo or Recommendations?

That mobo is a great mobo and a great buy for that price. I would go for it.
