Intel Core 2 Duo E6600
I wanted to know what mother board on ebuyer or anywhere can support Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 Conroe 2.4GHz 4M shared L2 Cache LGA 775 Processor. 2gb ram abd this graphics card http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/118475/rb/26381938288. And i want a prety strong/powerfull mother board. I am kind of new to this so i need help.
Lost of views and no replies. Anyways when looking for a mother board to i look for compadability from the intels site http://www.intel.com/cd/channel/reseller/asmo-na/eng/products/desktop/processor/processors/pentium-4/tech/299987.htm#965.
The thing is when looking for intel motherboards on ebuyer , most of them say that they are core 2duo ready. Which one should i folow
I don't really know what you mean by a "strong/powerful" mobo for a C2D CPU, but the Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3P is a good overclocker with a good set of features and doesn't cost too much.

I ment that the hard drive would be able to support stuff like
Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 (2.4ghz) Socket 775 FSB1066 4MB Cache Retail Boxed Processor.
2GB ram. http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/116357/rb/26382920208 (not sure about this ram but you get the picture)
And this graphics card or anythign else that could power a 19 inch flat screen http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/118475/rb/26382932456
The PSU i am not too sure about it but i was thinking of this one http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/114931.
Thanx for the help all i need is a mother board that is compatible and do these parts all fit together.
most core 2 duo mobo's support those.
Rather than us telling you what to buy (cause there are virtually 100s of mobos that can fit into this section), I suggest you do the looking and tell us what u think you like, and we will tell you if its good or not.
Give us a list of motherboards you would like to get ( see that they are LGA 775 socket mobos to support c2d, and it will say in the specification that it supports DDR II SDRAM, and that it has a pci-e slot)
There is no such thing as a strong/powerfull mobo, they are either built with alot of features and cost a fair bit, or they dont have as many features and cost less, at the end of the day almost all mobo within that range can support your items (some at slower speeds though, which is why im asking you for a list).
Also if you give us a cost range of how much you are willing to spend then we may be able to give you a small list of mobo's that may be best in that range.
Ok here is some i found at resonable prices. I want a mother board that i could run everything at mximum speeds. Not over clocking but something that supports maximum procesing speeds. Giving me the fasted computing possible.
If you know any better ones ie more powerfull and more expensive or the same specs but cheapers please post up
There is an Intel 965 based chipset board on that site for slightly less inc. VAT than the top one you listed and there is a Gigabyte 965 based board the DS3 for tiny bit more inc. VAT.
I would suggest going with either of those as the 965 chipset will give you overall better performance and options than the 945 based boards you listed.
Just off the top of my head those look like better choices imo.

Um, this is where everyone is starting to get confused. "Maximum speeds"? You say this but then say "No overclocking", which is a contradiction in itself.
Are you asking for something that will use a standard E6600, with no OC, some DDR and a vid card?
What do you have already? Are you looking to buy from scratch or do you already have a few HD's and a vid card that you want to use in a new machine?Quote:If you know any better ones ie more powerfull and more expensive or the same specs but cheapers please post up
"More powerful" is a misnomer. They are not "powerful". They may be "Versitile" but they are not the "engine" of the machine, they are more like the chassis.
Things we need to know to help you:
What do you have?
What do you need to get?
What FEATURES are you looking for (Ethernet on board, soundcard, OC timing, memory support)?
What is your price range?
Without these, all you will get is a bunch of people looking at your post and, sorry to say it, snickering at lines like "same specs but cheapers".
I also recommend that you look around a bit first. There are a lot of articles and posts on this site, and others, that can help you get a good start. Then you can come in and ask for some of the details as they become more clear to you.
Make sure you read the specifications for your motherboard carefully. You'll notice that the last motherboard doesn't support Core 2 Duo processors. If you take this out of the forums hands, and decide to go buy your own, make sure you buy a compatible motherboard. It really sucks spending a few hours putting a computer together, turning it on, and having it beep a few times before dying.
