i am a newcomer to Tom's. I want to buy a new motherboard. Problem is that my budget is very limited. I am outlining my needs so its up to u guys to decide.
need at least 2 GB ram
PCI e 2.0 x16 (NO SLI OR CROSSFIRE)
I'll take maybe The ATI 5550 or Nvidia 8800 GTx or ultra
Processor will be Pentium Dual Core.
Keeping all these things in mind please suggest a good MB which is in the $ 0-75 range
One more thing. YOU may not like it and label me as a terrorist country resident but i live in Pakistan. Things are not at the exact price here as in newegg. For e.g the 5570 is around 70 dollars. In Pakistan it is available only around rs.12000. Now calculate the difference your self considering $100 = Rs.8500.
Rather then point out lots of cool stuff you can't, list whats available to you. We can pick from that list the best item.
All of intel's classic boards are available except those which haven't been released yet for e.g DG41TX
Some of the Intel media series starters are also available but even the DG45ID is too hefty for me
ASUS boards are available but very scarce so no hope of getting them.
