Need help to pick a board for friend..

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Need help. My friend board died so I am looking a board for him. The problem is the budget is $50. He has E5500 and DDR2 1066 ram. Do you think that cpu and ram run on this board? It says only DDR2 800. I just worry about it may not supports that 1066 ram. Also, can this board do moderate OC- push that E5500 from 2.8 to 3.3 something like this?

That board ain't bad, but it doesn't natively support DDR2 1066, and i don't know if it will support that speed easily on the bios. Take this one in consideration, P5KPL-AM EPU

About OC'ing, i can't say, i never OC'ed one of those...They aren't know for the great overclock features, but you might get there if the CPU allows it
I need upgrades
