Best AUD$150-$200 mobo

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Well I've pretty much made my mind up on the parts for my new rig, the only thing I haven't decided on yet would be the mobo... I'm a total mobo noob especially as far as AMD mobos are concerned, so I want you to pick the best budget mobo here:

ATM I'm set on a 4850e Athlon dual-core and 2x2GBs of Kingston DDR2-800 CL5

$200 is absolute maximum, I'd rater keep it somewhere around $150-$170. I'm looking for quality over features, I don't need upgradability or any fancy stuff like SLI/CF and even OCability ain't a necessity, I'm not paying big bucks for an ability to OC but being able to get a tiny OC would be nice when the Winter comes (Ima be using the stock cooler). Anyways, form factor doesn't matter but I will be getting an ATX case.

!!ANNOUNCEMENT!!
I'll be getting a Phenom X3 instead, they were out of all Athlons so I decided to drop my GPU and make due with my old 8500GT in favor of a better CPU (and mobo; let's say that the new maximum will be, err, $230).

*sneeze*
Also, I may still get an Athlon, in which case I'd probably go for the 6000+ ... if possible/applicable (i.e. say we had an AM2 board $30 cheaper than an equivalent AM2+ board... in this case, the AM2 would be worth mentioning), would you be so nice as to pick best AM2 and AM2+ board? Tango Yankee, OCN...
