I need a new motherboard to go with a Athlon x2 6000 125w Windsor. The CPU will be upgraded later on in 2010 to a Phenom II. Budget would be $90 (including shipping and have little faith in rebates).

It would go along with
Win 7 64bit on a 500GB HDD
2GB DDR2 800 OCZ ram
9800GT
creative sound blaster sound card

all the parts are in a PC and work fine together but I'm moving them to a new case and need a new mobo.

currently looking at this one

my pleasure =)

anyways I just got this board :

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The reason I went with this specific model is because of the price/performance ratio.. It is currently in a custom HTCP case and mainly used for gaming. Runs extremely cool and have not had one BSOD since it was built.

Not sure if you are looking to save money or not, I was looking for a board that would be a stable as possible for the least amount of money. Currently have this board paired with a 550BE @ 3.5Ghz (stock cooler for now) / 4Gb of OCZ 1066Mhz / HD 5770 / WD Black 500Gb / Extreme-Gamer .... No issues to this date =)
