Budget overclocking motherboard needed

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
First of all this is my first post so i just want to say hi to everyone at the forums

Ok so as the title says i need a budget overclocking motherboard. I have been looking at the G31 chipset on the ASUS P5KPL-VM and the 946GZ on the ASUS P5B-MX. I have also looked at the ASUS P5N-MX with the 610i nvidia chipset. Another option is the XFX nforce 630i.

So what would you reccomend that i buy. It would be nice if somone also sugest a new better motherboard to my rather ASUS orientated list.

Thanks,
In advance.

I'd recommend the Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L. Great board for overclocking for its price. Just got one myself.

His budget is 70€, not $70. I'm not sure what 70€ translates to though, but I'm sure it is equal to more US dollars since we know how well the US dollar is doing.

I've never ordered from newegg, but it costs like 73,90€ here so i really dont want to pay that much since i think i can get a better deal on an asus.

Well i would like to get it for around 60€. Thats why i picked out those mobos in my original post so it would be nice to get some comments on those mobos. I would also like to know if there is any particular chipset you would reccomend.

If I where you I would just save some money so you can by a little bether! I once bought a cheap mobo and that is never going to happen again! if you buy a cheap one it wont last so long and the overclocking capabilities is limited:/
