Hi. I'm in the market to build a new computer, but I'm having a little trouble with something.
I've chosen the processor I want to buy, an AMD Opteron 148 Venus. It's the best one I can find in my price range ($200).
Now comes the tricky part. Finding a motherboard that will support this chip by itself, even if it requires a bios update to do so
I'm trying not to spend more than $150 on the board. The only ones I can find are extremely expensive, and/or are designed for multiple processors.
Anyone have any ideas?
Someone referred me to this board:
Its compatible with Opteron processors, but only with a bios update. The price is good too. However, the reviews are pretty dodgy on it. Lots of audio and video problems/failures, etc.
Anyone know of a GOOD board that will work with a single Opteron cpu?
