Best/Cheapest Motherboard

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
What is the best motherboard that I could get for about $60-$70? Preferably cheaper

It will be for an Intel Core 2 duo or an E2180.

Thanks

that's where you run into the price. you have to get an nvidia chipset to run sli. If you plan on affording two video cards, plan on affording a better motherboard. However, if you plan on only going with one video card, that board would fit your bill just right.

Don't do it. Any Crossfire/SLI board under $100 won't have quality. Unless you're willing to spend more, don't get it. IMO, STAY AWAY FROM ECS (Elitegroup). Bought a Crossfire mobo for around $50, worst decision in my life. Anyway, a good SLI mobo can be had for around $140. Check Newegg.
