Hello everyone,

I was wondering if anyone had a suggestion as to which mobo I should buy?
I want to upgrade my current system but keep my cpu for now.

Below is my cpu, vid card, and memory specs. I have the option of using my current Micro ATX case or using an ATX one that a friend has given me.

I would like to have the ability to upgrade the processor in a year or so, but for now will have to keep the current cpu. I am on a budget so I need something under $100.
The computer is used for heavy photo editing as well as some mild gaming. I may attempt to overclock once I learn more about it.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much for the replies. I was actually looking at the Gigabyte GA-EG41MF-S2H so the EP41 is probably the way I'll go.

Thanks again,
Ronnie
