They are all about the same really. Just find one you like and can support your processor.

Seen as though you didnt give us a price range, have a look on the 2 sites below, look at the motherboard (they are all for Intel CPU's) and pick on you like. The post it here and we'll check it its compatable and if its good.

EBuyer UK

and

Overclockers UK

They are the direct links to each sites Intel CPU compatable motherboards

Default hmmmmm

I was looking at the motherboards and by the looks of it I like the Intel motherboard......it only costs $126.00 canadian and it seems like a kick ass board. It is pointless for me to get an Nvidia motherboard because i have a Radeon 9700 pro video card! Thanks guys and make some requests if u wish!

Yeah, the Intel boards are usually good, my friend has one, had no problems with it so far. I like the Asus mobo's aswell, reliable, good quality (from what ive seen) and good prices.

Glad you found on you liked.

BTW, Which site is it off? so i can have a look at it

Lightbulb My experience

Have a real good look at specs.I have 6 pci slots,need 2 !
1 AGP,need 1.
Sound,not needed
video,not needed
It appears you are fed up with aopen board.
The asus P4B533 range might accept your cpu.It's a matter of slot type.
Comes with temp software and Intel App Accelerator.
And usb 2.

Yeah, that will be sweet and good choice going for dual channel, usually better than just getting one stick of 1 GB


Hope everything works fine for you
