Could you please recommend a motherboard.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi all, I'm sorry to bother you all, but could you recommend me a motherboard thats under £150 for this cpu please
http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...odid=CP-203-AM

I'm looking to upgrade from my amd 3700 soon so if the board could support my old cpu that would be a bonus.

Oh I live in the uk, I would look myself, infact I have been looking but it's been a while since I was up to date on pc components and I'm working for the rest of the week and was hopeing to order it on friday.

Thanks for your help

why are you getting the phenom instead of a Q6600 or if you dont have the money an E8400?

If you're looking for something more "cost-effective" the ASUS M3A is a good option:

Something higher-end Asus M3A MVP Deluxe WiFi

And for the overclockers it would be DFI 790FX, but it's not available on that site, nor is the Phenom such a terrific OCer.

You need a AM2+ MB to take advantage of the Phenom and any AM2 CPU will work in a AM2+ MB.What is your budget and what are you using it for?Integrated graphics,single video card or CrossFire?
