I have that processor paired with an Asrock N68-S board...I don't game or go crazy over specs.

I run 4GB PC2-6400 and use a 600-watt Ultra PSU and don't have any problems editing video or doing anything else.

that does look like a good board but was really looking to get up to the ddr3 line just to make it a little more future-proof...the old computer we have that this will be replacing is 15+ years old so we use them till they drop lol

Well, I would recomend this as the cheapest option I would go with, however, I think I would recomend something like this instead. Its one of my two rules of computer building, #1 is never skimp on the motherboard, you will regret it. My #2 rule is never skimp on the Power supply, and I would really recomend a higher quality PSU then the one you have, its really underpowered and I personally, do not trust rosewill PSUs, I would recomend a good Antec, Coolermaster, or corsair PSU.

I would suggest an AMD 8-series chipset if you're wanting USB 3.0 and SATA 6 for future uses. I would suggest the MSI 870A-G54 AM3 AMD 870 if you have the cash and time for rebates. Otherwise, patriot's motherboard suggestion should be considered. Everything looks good though, if I had a larger budget, I would change a few things, like an LED backlit monitor, a single 4GB stick of DDR3, and a different case. Those are all luxuries, however.

i was hoping for a board with onboard video which neither of those have and i dont mind spending a little more on a motherboard at all like $100 is fine and i wasnt sure about the psu cuz i am unfamiliar with rosewill stuff, so i will probably go with a different brand...maby this one??

That PSU looks good. And actually, that first gigabyte board I suggested does have onboard video. For a MSI board that would be a decent board. I know personally, I have had nothing but bad luck with MSI, however, I know others like DJBpace, use them regularly with no problems at all, so I would say eithers worth a shot

well, keep in mind, the reviews arnt the only thing you need to go on, as well as often times, the vast majority of people who buy the product and it works for them wont leave a review, its usually the few DOAs, which happen with any product-that ticks people off and then they leave a negative review. Google the product, go to sites like tomshardware and see what they say about it. . . For me, I recomend what I personally have the most luck with, both from purchasing, as well as repairs on customer computers, and friends computers, etc. etc. Everyone has a bit of a different experience, reading customer reviews is a good thing-I encourage it, but I wouldnt base your entire decision on whether to buy a motherboard or not based on them.

If you're not using SLI with an AMD CPU, I suggest staying away from nForce motherboards. Nvidia has been allowing their nForce chipsets to languish. That said, for about $100, I would go for the GIGABYTE GA-880GA-UD3H motherboard. It has all the features of an 8-series chipset, on-board video, and is at your price point.
