Lil Advice on Mobo please?

I was recommended to get the above Motherboard, but someone told me mATX's are limited.
So if anyone can find a similar motherboard, in english currency, or even tell me if its ok to just stick with the mATX, please do!
It will be highly appreciated.

Oh and if you can tell me or point me into the direction of detailed information of why mATX are at a disadvantage, please do!

Thanks in advance.

MATX is Micro ATX. Please dont spout off about something you have no clue about.

As to the questions Inferno posed. Micro ATX is limited only in how well it OCs. The manufactures do not put alot of the OC features in these boards. They tend to be inexpensive and not feature filled. You only have to go with an MATX if you case warrents one. If you can fit a full ATX motherboard get a full ATX and get all the features for OCing.

Thanks for the info!

Hmmm, I was just wondering do you think any of you can find a ATX motherboard for a similar price to the one I posted? On ebuyer.com?

I cant seem to find one with the same specs....

Please and thank you. Help is much appreciated!

Alright here you go. 4 good options.

Asus A8N-E 56.47 - I had the A8N5X whih is the same board with the NF4 chip instead of the NF4-Ultra. Nice board with good OC options.

http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/produ...duct_uid=95458

Asus A8N-SLi 68.74 - I am putting this one on here because it gives you the ability to go SLi in the future if you want and has the same OC features as the one above.

http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/produ...duct_uid=82819

MSI K8N Neo4-F 47.99 - MSI makes a good board and this one seems to be a good OCer.

http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/produ...duct_uid=98137

MSI K8N SLi-FI 61.21 - Same as above but with SLi.

http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/produ...uct_uid=107522

Hope this info helps you make a good choice mi amigo. Good luck.
