Default Re: Motherboard suggestions

A Core 2 Duo supported motherboard for under $150? Whew, lets see if I can find a decent one....

The motherboard supports DDR2 800 which is better than the DDR2 667. I'm using a Gigabyte motherboard and it's great. Had it for nearly two years now without a replacement.

GIGABYTE GA-965G-DS3 Socket T (LGA 775) Intel G965 Express ATX Intel Motherboard

the p5nsli has issues read the asus forums, alot of restarts, and mine personally sucks. i cannot transfer files from one driver to the other without a memory dump and restart, yes i have checked all of the components in it and it boils down to mobo. it is not overclocked and i have had it with 1 gig ddr2 and i took out a 512 stick (no sense in having 1 gig when it won't work) also this board is very picky when it comes to memory and if you do overclock that is very limited with this board.

also the p5nsli has an nforce 4 chipset not the nforce 570 that is advertised on the box and on the website. if i had seen the asus forums before i bought it i would have kept looking.
