A good cpu for arount 150$ - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Thread Starter 
no crossfire/sli just a pci express, under 150$, and overclocking would be a bonus but isn't a must.

Gigabyte GA-EP35-DS3L. Keep in mind there's no RAID support. The DS3R has a RAID controller but costs a little more.

They use the P35 Chipset, which has excellent OC'ing ability.

Agreed. The DS3L has the 1333 bus speed love's 45nm's, and would overclock that E7200 very well. And stable. That's why I use it with my E8400

For $150, E7200 is the way to go. With 9.5x, any P31/P35 board should be fine. Liked others say, the P35-DS3L is good at $100 range. The P31-DS3L is good also if you want a cheaper board.
