  1. Hello :)
    Its a P35 board therefore you need to go with C2D CPUs which are out of production,so you won't have any good upgrade paths.
    If you already have bought the CPU,then yes go for this motherboard,its a mainstream P35 however it may not OC as good as other higher-end models
  2. core 2 duo is availbale at my place and will buy later,and i am not willing to OC(I dont need to destroy my warranty),I am keeping it in stock!
  3. You might want to consider an AMD set-up.
    - Asus M2N68-AM
    - Any AM2+ or AM3 processor

    It would be a bit more upgradeable than a C2 setup today.
  4. But i had alredy bought the mobo
  5. OH, then you're probably all set. The only OC limitation with that board is that you can't manually set the Ram timings. Since you're not overclocking, then you're pretty much all set.

    Then go for it,it will be good budget gaming machine (along with a good VGA though :D )
  7. Any bottlenecks in any ways?
  8. Motherboard doesn't make a difference in games,the most important parts are VGA,CPU and RAM,so as long as you have a good combination of this trio then you will be fine
  9. ok the cpu will be the e8400,ram will be 2gbx2 dual channel and the hd 4850!

    How is it?
  10. For a budget build it is pretty good enough
  11. Right^
    It will be a good gaming machine
  12. Thanks!
