ok im usually pretty good at figuring out the best for a new build but i am trying to find a decent am2 mobo thats a good ocer but not top of the line, im putting together some of my old components to make a internet comp for the front room in my new house and want something that i can fold 24/7 on a dual core and surf the net and stuff but i want to get the most out of it i.e. oc it a bit <br />
<br />
im familier with dfi/asus but was wondering are there anyothers out there that perform well for a lower price since im not familier with any other producers like abit and gigabyte <br />
<br />
thanks for any input

i have everything but the mobo for the most part, my main rig has the dfi 590, i am looking for something that will oc but that doesnt cost 200$ since it wont be for gaming or anyhting just messing around and folding<br>
edit<br>

I think that board looks pretty decent. Let's see if anyone has experience with it.

the Abit nF-M2 is looking very good for an mATX with integrated vga.<br />
It's got a decent BIOS, voltages & there's a screenie floating around of 1 doing 3.2Ghz (320x10) ...

check out the new epox mf570 SLi, a user on another forumn reviewed it and said it was a great OCer, its about 130-140 on newegg, its more than the infinity, and has sli which you wont be using, but seems to be a good board,<br />
<br />
Its pretty much the only reason why Id buy an AM2 system is if I got that epox board, especially with the Core 2 Duo's Im a huge fan of Epox.<br />
<br />
My old 8kha+ ran 24/7 for almost 6 years before my little bro spilled milk on it... Epox is quality!!<br />
<br />
here is the board: <br />
