Hi

I've got a AMD PHENOM 9600 AGENA 2.3 GHZ AM2 AM2+ QUAD CORE 2MB L2 CPU which I was gonna put in my Asrock ALive NF7G-HDready motherboard but unfortunately, it needs a BIOS upgrade before it'll work with it.

So I'm looking for a new cheap motherboard that will work with my CPU and I think it needs to have the same chipset so that my Windows XP installation won't need a complete re-install

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated :)

Put your old CPU back in, update BIOS, install new CPU??

sorry I should have mentioned, it's a mate's PC and he decided to pull the CPU out and managed to break some pins as he rammed it back in :ouch:

So you need a new CPU and not a new MB!

Ugh, that is kinda painful :/ 
Rather than spending more cash on a new motherboard, perhaps you should check at a local PC shop.
I am quite sure that if you slip a tech a few bucks they would be happy to slip in an old CPU and update the BIOS for you...

If you still would like to pick up a new board, what kind of budget are you looking at?

good idea, think I'll go the new mobo route though - hopefully looking at less than £50

Kinda tough to get anything good under £50...

If you could strech it another £10-15, I think you would be happy with either the Gigabyte GA-MA770-UD3 or ASUS M4A77D.
If you must keep it under £50, an Asus M4A78L-M LE will do what you need.

I went with the Asus M4A77D in the end and it worked a treat :) 

Thanks everso much for all your help, much appreciated :)
