Help with chosing the right thing.

Hi all,

sorry to bother your but i'm really puzzled.
I want to buy a new motherbord for my computer.
I want (well, need) to keed my processon that's a Intel Quad Core Q6600.

I don't have a huge budget ($200) but I'd like to buy something performing. can somebody help?
I'm not an expert, but surfing the internet I digured out that the INTEL DP45SG can be a good choice, am I wrong? Is there any other model I could consider? I'm looking for a 775 socket and a DDR3 motherboard... if possible.

In a second time I'd also like to buy a new video card, for the same amount of money ($200) what would be the best to buy?

Thanks a lot, I really appreciate any help you guys can give me.

Riccardo

  1. Bang for the buck at newegg.com:

    Ecs P45T-AD3 for $94.99 shipped. Plenty of features, and no worse failure rate than some asus boards.
    XFX HD-577A ZNFC Radeon 5770 1GB GDDR5 $169.99 shipped with free Battleforge game.

    ECS boards have a bad reputation, but they work ok for non overclockers. If you want to overclock, get an asus or msi.
  2. Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3L. Mine has a Q6600 OC'd to 3.6 GHz.
