I bought a ASrock N68C-S UCC about 2 motnhs ago, and it broke while installing and no RMA so, I need help choosing a new motherboard that has:

UCC/ACC

DDR3 and DDR2 combo like some boards

Must be AM3.

Must be cheap.

Please recommend me a motherboard, thanks!

There was a short underneath the CPU socket when the CPU was in to I tok off the white thing that hold the CPU on, and one pin was broke, anyway I need a new one.

I have £45, and I'll try to get more for my 'services'

That's your only choice for DDR2 and DDR3.Why do you need both?Why not just use a DDR2 board?

The reason I went for the ASrock N68 initially was because I didn't have enough money for DDR3, so I knew I could later upgrade with DDR3.

If you can recommend me a board with DDR3 it must be cheap enough so I can also buy DDR3.

Thanks again.

dont get a mobo with nforce630a chipset,
I'm suffering with this chipset & I dont want u to fall in trouble,
u can find cheap yet good ram like:
2gb kingston hyperX 1600mhz $19,
my maternal uncle also uses this very ram & it runs great,
I made him a new build with this ram,asus m4a88t-m-le,athlonII x2 250 two weeks ago

I have had the Asus M4N68T-M.Performance was good with a dedicated GPU and 2GB RAM.Had some cold-boot issues when overclocked,the only problem I had with it,and I got around that.Bottom line is this-any cheap mobo is gonna act cheap.The more you spend,the better off you are.I would really rec. using the RAM you have and getting this board

I'll have to go with a chapy board like ASrock N68...

I know the chipset is old, but this is the cheapest board that I can also get DDR3 with too.

I could get the Asus, but then I could only get 1GB with sucks on 64BIT.
