Mobo Suggestions

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Ok I would like to upgrade my mobo so I can overclock my processor but don't know to much about which mobo is good which is bad when it comes down to their specs
If anyone could help find one for me
I'm currently using an EliteGroup MCP61PM-AM mobo
I'm looking for a mobo that has
4 RAM slots that supports DDR2 memory
Supports Socket AM2 processors
Has a good BIOS (maybe a little more user friendlier than some others)
And can anyone explain to me what needs to be transferred from my old mobo to my new mobo besides memory and the processor?

VGA (and now, DVI and even HDMI) output ports are standard only on motherboards with integrated graphics; typically, these boards are not "enthusiast class," but there have been exceptions in the past.

because the mb above does not have a inregrtaed video card you plug you monitor into the video card like an 8600GT or Ati 4850
and yes the ram will work with the mb
