Need motherboard and cpu help for build.

NO GAMING. I might decide to do some video transfering(editing) from my camcorder to my DVD's. Other than that just normal home use.

Anyway what I have so far is:
1. A nice big case for standard ATX or smaller
2. Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3250410AS 250GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive
3. SAMSUNG Black 20X DVD Burner
4. Crucial Ballistix 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)
5. Antec earthwatts EA430 430W ATX12V v2.0 Power Supply 100

I had finally decided on the GIGABYTE GA-MA78G-DS3H, but now it is already not sold on newegg(deactiviated). Anyone have anymore ideas on something close to that board. My price is under $200.00. for both a CPU and board. Thanks

  1. I'm assuming you also want the board to have very good integrated graphics. You could try this for example:

    AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ Windsor 3.0GHz $80
  2. I'd also up the RAM to 2x2GB as well.
  3. Another +1 for 2x2GB of RAM.
  4. Another +1, especially if using Vista.
  5. Thanks. I will look into it.
  6. If you want that board, you can get it on for about $90
