Need help choosing a motherboard Tags: Motherboards Product Last response: July 9, 2009 4:48 PM in Motherboards Share Pyroflea a b V Motherboard July 8, 2009 8:15:30 PM I'm working on a new computer, and I can't seem to decide on what motherboard to use. There are a few requirements, but otherwise it's completely up to you guys! 1) It has to be available on either NCIX.com or Infonec.com. Newegg.ca will be accepted ONLY if it's an AWESOME motherboard. 2) It HAS to be Micro-ATX. 3) I just want integrated video (preferably nVidia, this will be a Linux box), preferably with HDMI. DVI would be acceptable, but again, I'd like an HDMI port. 4) It can be either Intel or AMD, I could care less. 5) It can't be too expensive. Under $100 would be preferred; $120 and under is also fine. $150 is the absolute maximum. Thanks in advance. If I missed any info lemme know. - Pyro More about : choosing motherboard Upendra09 a b V Motherboard July 8, 2009 9:35:41 PM http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... This is awesome, it is Intel integrated graphics, don't get Nvidia mobos, they are problematic, and is 90 dollars USD. don't know if available in Canada for less shipping.
