Budget gamer help Tags: New Build Systems Product Last response: July 8, 2008 7:48 PM in Systems Share neowart July 7, 2008 9:15:37 PM So I just lost my budget for an $800 system from my previous thread. If I go with a Core 2 Duo E7200 and a ATI 3870, is there a good mobo for <$100 that will support 4 gigs DDR2 800 that won't let me down? BTW- if this is something that will just fudge me over later then let me know b/c I don't want that!
