as the title says im looking for a mobo that will work with...

AMD Phenom II x4 955 BE 3.2ghz 125w
and
2x2GB of DDR2 PC2-4300 533mhz memory
and
is mATX size

im looking to spend around £50/$75

i have been searching around a lot and unable to find a mobo to suit as not many boards support 125w cpus and not a lot that do support 125w cpus support 533mhz ram.

any help appreciated
thanks

have been looking a bit more ...

here is a mobo that supports 125w cpus and some ddr2 ram
http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=...
however under specifications it says
"Support for DDR2 1200(O.C.) /1066/800 MHz memory modules"
im suppose im just a bit confused about wether even though it says "1200(O.C.) /1066/800 MHz", if i can put 533mhz in it as it might just be listing top speeds rather than all the speeds.

Look at the CPU support page. If your chip is a C2 version then it will work with the shipping BIOS version F1. If you have a C3 chip then you need to update that BIOS, or hope it ships with at least the F3 BIOS, or it won't POST.
