Please help: which motherboard??

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I am giving away my old processor to one of my friends. It is an Intel E2140 1.6GHz that I successfully overclocked to 3.4(!) GHz in my Gigabyte P31-DS3L mobo (and used like that for years, so it is stable...). That is 425MHz*8 instead of the stock speed 200MHz*8!

So, my friend already have 2x2GB DDR3 memory modules. As he does not want to play computer games but wants to overclock the processor and of course wants to use his DDR3 modules, he would need a mobo that is:
- Supports bus speed up to 425MHz (but at least up to 400MHz)
- Supports DDR3
- Have integrated VGA (he doesn't want to play games...)
- Cheap

Any suggestion? If you would provide me with a few mobo model numbers that would be great.

Thanks.

Something like this: http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?Model=P45DE3
but with VGA?
