What processor are you planning to use? Video card? I'm sure you can get a more affordable P45 motherboard that suits your needs but won't break your bank.
EDIT: Also, if all you need is a P43, there you have it. Are you looking for a mobo with some upgrade room?
Im looking to buy a new d Intel Core 2 Duo E7400 and i got the 4870 512mb GPU.
I cant decide wat to get. Im looking to upgrade my comp dat is y i bought the new GPU and all i need now is the mobo. so if u can help.
I have the ASUS P5Q SE\R with a E7200 running at 1600fsb 3.8ghz vcore 1.29 31c idle and 53c full load. I have the ANTEC 1200 and the Vendetta 2 Cpu cooler. You can get the mobo for 130$ and the CPU for 130$ both in canadian $. The CPU cooler around 40$ I believe. Then in 2 years time you can swap in the most powerful quad core 775 socket you can find and get another 2 years out of your rig. For the memory I bought ballistix tracer ddr2 800mhz 2x2gb for around 70$ canadian. You can tighten the timings to 4 12 12 12 by increasing the voltage to 2.0 v OR you can increase the speed to 1066mhz by increasing the voltage to 2.0v. I haven't tried higher but it seems there is still a bit of room. Later on in a few years you can add 2 more sticks to get 8gb. Don't waste your money.
