What is a good mobo?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
hello, i just need your opinion guys. I currently have a foxconn mobo which have oc limitations. i can't seem to change the vcore settings, there's no pci/agp lock, and the memory timings selections are low. with these i can't get past 3.5ghz with my 3.0ghz 630 cpu.

Now, what i need help on is that i want to buy a new mobo (not expensive). So i'm asking you guys which mobo has all these oc options. Such as, the abilty to change the vcore temp, the abilty to have pci/agp lock, great memory timing settings, and others.

Thanks in advance.

Ill have a look sorry you didnt give me a budget to work on but not to worry.

Here is a pretty good cheaper mobo:Asus P5VD1-X SKT775 PT880 1066FSB AGP and PCI-E VGA slots : http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/100835/rb/18689842250

As to the mobob you asked if it was good i would say No as it uses the SIS chipset and they really arnt good for overclocking plus this board obly supports 2gb of ram : http://reviews.cnet.com/ASUS_P5S800_...-31228337.html
