I did so because, like you, I wanted minimal costs/hastle to get the support I wanted. As for best? I think the best you're going to get is a 785/790 based amd chipset. You can get very good boards in this line up for about $80. The M4A785-M that I'm using is quite good, but also: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... This board by GIGABYTE features a little better overall feature load-out in my opinion, it's definitely a trust-worthy manufacturer, and it's still at a good price. volta November 18, 2010 7:59:08 PM matx or atx does not matter, but mATX is preferred. whichever has better overall/OCing performance.
