Quick! Best Intel mobo under $50

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Quickly! my friend is about to order a few parts hes getting for an upgrade, and he got a little more money than he had expected (although he still doesnt have much)


Hes getting:
Intel E1200
Nvidia 8800GS
and a motherboard for <$50

all i need to know is what motherboard is the BEST overclocker for 50 dollars or less


OR do you think he should stick with the $39 dollar PC Chips motherboard he was gonna get, and upgrade from the E1200 to an E2180

E1200 is 1.6ghz 512kb l2
E2180 is 2.0ghz 1mb l2

ATX or Micro ATX?

I say he should get some used gear if that is his budget. Or wait until he has some more cash. If he is looking for the cheapest, I think the P5E is his best bet for a cheap overclocker. If he can afford a bit more, get a DS3L.

Yeah, if it's going to be used for overclocking, tell your friend to wait and save a little more for a better board. $50, honestly, won't get you much.
