Default Is this a good motherboard?

http://www.planetmicro.co.uk/product...ckcode=M005501

I want to stick at least a 3500+ on it and a gig of ram.

Also, what difference will I be able to see between an expensive m/b and a cheap one?

Thanks

I had a similar Gigabyte card and had no problems with it. If you plan on gaming at all I would suggest getting a PCI-E mobo though.

The more $$$ the more bells and whistle honsetly if you can afford to get a $$$ mobo then go ahead but make sure you got what you want first thats what I did.

I would go with a foxconn if you're not going SLI, but if you want to go SLI, go with an MSI. (Either way, get PCI-E)
If you get a cheap mobo, it can choke the speeds of your computer rediculously, and a good one can let it fly. Choosing a good mobo is one of the most important aspects of your computer.
