It's the cheapest Core 2 Duo motherboard I'd recommend Not expensive for a decent Core 2 Duo mobo. Sorry
I guess it's a matter of supply and demand. And personally, the mobo (together with the PSU) are the core parts of a PC and should NEVER be skimped upon.
And getting that processor up to 3.0 GHz would be so awesome.. I'll buy water cooling and I'll have to get alot of help with doing that.
Thanks so much for all the help.
