Has anyone ever heard of this board?

MSI 945GM3-F

I was going to build an Athlon x2 3800+ but now I'm considering switching over to a Core 2 (e6300). To keep things in budget, my motherboard would have to be as close to $50 as possbile with $75 being the max I could spend. Thanks!

What is yuor total budget for CPU/MoBo/RAM?

If somehow possible, I'd stay away from an mATX board with the 945 chipset. Yes, it'll run, but overclocking... nay.. not really.
