WOW, really small budget. Most mobos start at $50. $60 is normally the cheapest low-end one you can get, especially for AM2......Ok then.......hey, we're all victims of budget, right?

In that case.......keep in mind this is really on the cheap. Here are 3 different brands, not sure if you have a preference. Each are in your price range:

MSI K9VGM-V Socket AM2 VIA K8M890 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail

ECS C51GM-M (V1.0) Socket AM2 NVIDIA GeForce 6100 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail

ASUS M2V-TVM Socket AM2 VIA K8M890 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E1681...

ECS one isn't the best chipset.....I'd say it's a toss up between the MSI and the ASUS. Personally, I'd go with the ASUS.

for overclocking, I'll prefere Foxconn ones, but sadly, they don't have good one for AM2 yet even it's already showed in several shows before..

they only have NVIDIA 6100 chipset, I'll prefere 6150 wich they only oofer for Socket 939 at this time

Hi,
For mATX AM2 Boards in the UK you can also get

Asrock have 4 boards the ALiveNF6G-DVI (GF6100) seems the best about £50-70

Biostar Tforce GeForce 6100-AM2 Mainboard

But I dont know of any with the newer chipsets

wht is the latest chip set,

the last i remember is nforce 4

also are there any with SLI

u is the Greek symbol for micro as in MicroATX.

btw have a look at http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?t=11... - it's a shame that you wouldn't be overclocking but the results say a lot about the board's engineering.

there was only 1 mATX board with SLi for 939 & I doubt that it's going to be any better for AM2.
