want a new mobo

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
does anyone care to reccomend a motherboard to replace mine with? I heard since my mobo has the bios locked, if i got a new mobo i could overclock through the bios (or wait forever for someone to hack the bios). id like to spend about 100 bucks.

it doesnt have to be SLI, mini-atx form factor, ddr2 memory, am2 socket... umm, i dont know if anything else matters.

theres the official specs for the computer. im looking around on newegg now, but i dont really know enough to shop for one to fit my specs. and i dont know the difference between $50 mobos and $500 mobos.

thanks a bunch!

If you plan on using the HP case then you need a Micro-ATX motherboard.
Persoanlly, I like BIOSTAR TForce TA780G M2+HP AM2+/AM2 AMD 780G Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Gigabyte also makes some pretty nice boards. GIGABYTE GA-M78SM-S2H AM2+/AM2 NVIDIA GeForce 8200 HDMI Micro ATX


You may also want to think about upgrading that PSU to something a little more powerful. OCing your processor requires extra power.

Maybe something like THIS.

Last, be sure to read read read and read more. There is a lot of good info on this site that will give you a better understanding of the different settings motherboards have to offer. It will also help you get started OCin your processor when you get your new board.

That biostar is a decent board. It has loads of features and OCs pretty well. Good suggestion.
