Well I managed to get an E5200 off eBay for cheap to build a new budget system. However I don't know which motherboard to get though.

I want the cheapest one obviously but one that can accept the E5200 and take a 4670 graphics card. It would need to be able to at least overclock the E5200 to 3ghz. Also it has to be able to accept 800mhz DDR2 RAM.

Thanks in advance! I'm from the UK so sites like newegg won't really help :S

Well I think I'll choose from out of these 3: Which one would suit my needs the best?
-Asus P5KPL-AM
-Foxconn G31MX-K iG31
-MSI G31M3-F iG31

Sites like Newegg still are valuable as you can read user reviews. If you read them, you'll probably eliminate the Foxconn. The MSI gets decent reviews, but it isn't a great overclocker. Newegg have the Asus P5KPL-CM, not the P5KPL-AM. The Asus might overclock slightly better, but don't expect too much from such inexpensive motherboards.
