Default Need help in finding a motherboard



Hi,
Im planning on building a computer and I dont know which mother board to use.
Im going to be using:
Intel Pentium Dual Core (E6700)
DDR2 800 2GB RAM
and running Windows XP.
Also I would need a PCI Express 2.0 x16 port for a graphics card.

Any help appreciated.

Asus P5KPL-AM SE iG31 Socket 775 onboard Graphics.. | Ebuyer.com

You don't say what sort of graphics card you've got or even if you've got one already. This motherboard is ASUS (Decent make), supports that CPU and more, uses DDR2 and although it's got integrated graphics, it's also got a PCI express x16 slot.

The PCI-Express slot is PCI-E v.1.1 though, but your PCI-E Graphics card will be backwards compatible and will work. The trouble is, there's very few chipsets out there that will support both DDR2 and PCI-E v.2, especially for the intel C2D line of CPU's.

Hope that helps.

If this is a completely new build I would recomend that you run away screaming from those parts.
If not, I would recomend the Newegg.com - ASUS P5E3 PRO LGA 775 Intel X48 ATX Intel Motherboard (However, it is not compatable with your ram.)
Otherwise, Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-P43-ES3G LGA 775 Intel P43 ATX Intel Motherboard (pci-e 2.0 and supports ur ram.)
