Best Motherboard for Athlon 64 x2 Black edition

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to upgrade my Mobo pretty soon, and from what I can see my best option would be a Asus M2N32-SLI Deluxe, but these are hard to find now.

What would you recccomend that would allow me to overclock, but still be around £50 - £100?

Or should I just upgrade my CPU to the newer generation? which would cost me more but might be better in the long run.

hey can anyone help me out? I have a Msi 785GM-E51 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130247

And was wondering if an Amd athlon ii x4 640 3.0ghz would work and be a good Oc'er? Or should i just go with something cheaper ( money is not a problem ) and buy the Amd athlon x2 265 Regor 3.3Ghz and Oc it? I am mainly just going to game ( hardcore ) and surf the web. I want to know witch is best for my situation and the Mobo! Thx!
