I need a motherboard

Recommended Posts

Well, I need a new motherboard. Most of you know my problem already. So now i need suggestions on a new motherboard.

Cheaper is better, I don't want to spend alot of money on this.

Here's some of the minimum requirements:

AMD Athlon 64 X2 (but able to run a quad core if I decide to upgrade in the future)

DDR2 800MHz ram (preferable 4 slots, even though i only have 2- 1gig sticks)

ATI Radean HD 3850 PCI Express 2.0 16x

DVI output(VGA, HDMI optional)

2 USB ports

Onboard video a plus, but not necessary

Atleast 1 lineout audio jack(everything else is optional)

If you need anything else just let me know.

This is one I found:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128376

(Its very similar to the one I already have)

Edit: there no rush on this, I just wanted to get a good idea on whats out there.

You will be surprised how well it covers. You don't want a whole lot because it will work in reverse and not do its job. You can Google application of thermo compound  and see what I mean!

EDIT: Read this.

I also use coffee filters to clean the cpu and heatsink because it is lint free.
