Hi all I recently purchased an Athlon II x2 Dual-core 255 ( 3.1ghz ) processor and while I have tried my hand at finding a suitable motherboard I have to admit defeat. I am working on a budget at the moment but all suggestions are welcome
Bare in mind I have a stick of 2GB DDR2 800 RAM which I want to use and a half-way decent onboard GPU would be nice until I can a new graphics card.
Just struggling with understanding compatability and what not. Thanks in advance.
Thanks for the welcome, I chose this forum because I found it very informative over the years.
Budget is quite a loose term, I want to know what the best motherboard is for what I've got atm and I would like a few cheaper alternatives. I live in South Africa so we happen to be one of the biggest butt-holes of I.T. what may not seem inexpensive to some overseas is an arm and a leg here once one considers the exchange rate and the ridiculous markup our retailers put on equipment.
