Hi there After some Help, I'm building myself a new pc I have just brought a Intel Core™2 Quad Q6600 got it for £120 ( not sure if thats a great price ) but i'm looking for a half descent motherboard to go with it. I dont want to go overboard with cost preferably under the £100 mark.

Also looking for some RAM about 2-4 GB and a power supply.

Hope you can through some suggestions my way as its been a while since i last built a pc and all the new gear is mind boggling.

Thanks in advance!!

What website(s) will you be using for parts? Since you posted your budget in pounds (right?) I'm assuming youre not in the US or Canada and won't be using newegg.
