Good am2 mobo

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey, my friend needs to get a new pc, and he wants AMD. Hes not gonna be doing any overclocking, or going sli/cf, so I'm looking for something that is rock solid stable and performs well.

Thanks in advance

PS: Needs enough IDE connectors to run 2 harddrives and 2 cd/dvd drives

I had the asus m2n-e and it worked great as a 24/7 folder with a small oc on it, very simple good board (IMO)

EDIT: ahh bummer your in Aussie land, they got a m2n-e open box for $50 at the egg

This is the only motherboard I could find with dual IDE channels, and it's a good name, it's only an nForce4, but that was proven solid with socket 939 at least

oops the M2N-E is also dual IDE

Check out the biostar t-force 550! It has overclocking functions etc and is so cheap! Perfect for what you are looking for since it's a very stable mobo even though he doesn't want to OC it
