Give us all the system specifications and we can find a mobo that fit in the dell's case. But how i see, you can change with a standar ATX. The problem here, could be the warranty and the devices compatibility.

Ok, i was looking for a good mobo, and maybe the standart ATX not fit in the case, but a micro-atx is perfect for the case.
November 18, 2009 8:13:01 PM

i had some research on my side as well. seems like micro mobo fits only. wpould you be able to suugest me any quality mobo up to £200? Thank you

Hi men, i spent 1 hour or more try to find if the mobo of your PC is ATX, micro-ATX ot BTX, and the most of the forums that i visited, said that is micro-atx. So here are 3 options:

I like asus though . A couple things concern me : this card is slightly pricy in comparance with standard form mobo and does not have crossfire bridge(which eventually i have to pay for) May be it is me.? I'm new to this thing so my expectation is too high.
To be honest i have a second thoughts now whether to go for standart mobo and buy a case(~£60-£70). anyway i have to buy new(more powerful) psu .North bridge overheating gets me worrying slightly)For £200i guess i could get a good mobo. What do you think about ASUS P6T/deluxe/deluxeV2. Also i like the feature in P6T that in about 5s(that is what tehy claim) you can boot your system for things like skype, email checking to do without fully awaking the system.Lovely feature though.:)  Cheers again saint19 i'll do some research and talk to you soon!

+1, don't have any sense spend this money in an mobo without SLI or X-FIRE. This 3 are good options for ATX:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submi...

My firts vote go for the EVGA. Why?, 'cause support 1600 native, without overclock, and the same price that the ASUS P6T Deluxe V2.

The second option is the ASUS P6T Deluxe V2, is a really good mobo. Dual LAN port, PCI-E 2.0 and can support DDR3 2000 with overclock

The last option is the ASUS P6TD Deluxe. Why? more expensive, but have 16+2 phase power and support 4 SLI or 4 X-FIRE, a big monster.

Cheers!

Hi,
had a close look.
The last option is the ASUS P6TD Deluxe. Why? more expensive, but have 16+2 phase power and support 4 SLI or 4 X-FIRE, a big monster. : if i intend to use no more than to graphic cards will my system suffer from not having 16+2 phase power?
Today i spoted a good deal on asus P6T £160( that is very reasonable price in uk)
Another thing is : when mentioned native 1600 then what is native for asus P6T?(asking that kind of question due to my lack of knowledge:) Though P6T able to handle 2000 as well.
If i go for a deluxe V2 let say i will pay extra £20 which is not a lot but why i should if i do not tend to use those extra options.
And would you tell me what benefit i get using dual lan?

The native for the ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 is 1333 and for the other are 1333 and 1066.

The dual LAN is usefully whe you have 2 ISP, in one you can dowload a game or sometime, and in the other you can stay palying online without problems. Or you can connecto another computer with a crossover cable without disconnect the internet.

Tell me: native, what that actually means?

This mean, that if you put DDR3 1600 in the EVGA, the mobo recognized this as DDR3 1600 or is easy to you set to 1600 in the FBS/Memory Ratio of the BIOS.

BUT in the ASUS is diferent, 1333 is recognized by default, but for 1600 you must configure in the BIOS manually, I mean, set the correct voltage, the CL, the TRC, the TRCD....

P.D. Sorry for my bad english, but i'm not from USA or UK...i'm from Colombia, so, my language is spanish.

don't worry , i'm lithuanian english is secong language for me.
coming back to mobo.You've mentioned for couple of times about evga mobo just want to make point here :not to soung ignorant we hardly have any evga choise over here in uk so i stick to asus.
well i hope it is not a big deal to learn setting up fsb/memory in bios if that is considered to be save doing that. i think i'm very close in making my choise: asus P6TD deluxe. Appearently it outperfomes V2 version and have very solid reputation(red in many magazines) I'm not surpised that asus P6T deluxe V2 costs less then asus P6TD deluxe.
