MoBo for E5200

I'm still undecided on which cheapish (£50-65) motherboard to get to pair with an E5200.
I'm looking to over clock it at some point (it'll be my first time).

Any suggestions?

If you want to OC it in the future, you will want to get a P35 or P45 mobo.

I you need onboard video look for a G45 mobo.

Yeah I was thinking of going for a P35.
This has caught my eye at the moment:

Was just doing some research on this for you. Did a search on google, saw the post then realised it was done by you :p 

That board looks ok :) 

Another point to add to his post is will the 9600gt be at all limited by the e5200 at stock speeds?

Heheh, had the same dillemma couple of weeks ago, I was going to go for Asus P5K or this one you chose. Ended with P5Q pro because while I couldnt decide they both went out of stock @ ebuer :D  I can see this one is back but not the asus. Anyway, its a decent looking board and in my opinion whatever you choose(out of major brands) will work, unless it wont but thats always a lottery - I can see people slaggin off the whole P5Q series while mine is rock solid with E5200 @ 3.64ghz on stock cooler. I hope you`re getting what im trying 2 say. Good luck
