Hello, I have heard that you can get a PCI-E x16 w/ Slots for DDR3 memory, PCI expantion slots and Socket AM2 for 40 Dollars?!?!

I've also heard that you should never go for the cheap motherboard and if the price is too good to be true, it probobly is.

Is all this true, could I get that kind of a mobo for 40/50 dollars!?!?

No. There isn't any AM3 motherboards for $40, DDR3 only available on AM3 motherboards.

For standard non overclocking use, a cheap motherboard is fine, as long as it comes from a reputable company. Asus, gigabyte, MSI, and asrock are some of my favorites.
