I am currently planning a gaming computer build, with AMD/ATI parts. I wanted to post here and see what motherboards people would recommend. I've never purchased a motherboard before, so I'm somewhat new to this, but I want a board that will be as future-proof as possible. It needs: Support for phenom II x4 (AM3) 2 pci-e 2.0 slots and all around good build quality, with room for upgrades.
I would like to keep it in the <$200 range.
Any suggestions? What's your favorite brand?
Overclocking is not a necessary part, as I'm currently not into overclocking. But it would be nice to have that option open for the future.
