I have a am2 cpu but my crap asus board is dead so what will be a good m-atx board that can still use the cpu while later being able to upgrade to a p2 x3. The cpu is a athlon64 3500+, here is the code ada3500ia4cw
I use the biostar N61PB-MS2 with 2 ddr2 slots, 4 sata and 1 ide port. It works ok and will run many am3 cpus with a bios flash. It doesn't overclock for me at all, but I'm not that knowledgable about the subject. If you want to run any phenom cpus that are higher than 95 watts, check the board specs carefully before ordering. Many cheaper boards have a recommended limit of 95 watts.
