Ok, I need some help for a motherboard. I was thinking of something like an Asus p5n-D or an Asus p5n-Q but I am unsure with my decision. Anyway, I play games ocasianly, watch movies and surf on the internet. That's about it. Here are my requirements for the mobo.

- Must be around 50$~200$.( no more then 200$)

- I don't think i'll be running sli 'cause ill just put in a good single 9000 series card.

- a socket 775 mobo. I am still undicided if i should get a C2Q Q6600 or a C2D series.

- 4 ram slots. Cuz i'll be running my old rams on it.

- ATX mobo

Comments and Suggestions are welcome. Thanks

Hi, why not have a look at the Asrock P43twins it a very good maindoard i've just used it, it will take Intels new 45nm CPU's as well as 8Gb of DDR2 RAM and 4Gb of DDR3 RAM if you ever want to upgrade, it also has an E-Sata port. Not sure on the exact $conversion but I paid about 50 for it.
Cheers
Jules
