New mobo

ok, weeks of looking and bringin up...3? mother boards that fit what i need.

I want/need (due to some unknown problem with i think my south brige) a new mobo, which will deffinatly take a core 2 quad Q8200 AND WILL run SLI x2 AND will run on DDR2 ram
price range - £0 to £120 (roughly, might be able to scratch £140)

More about mobo
  1. The ASUS P5N-D is an LGA 775 SLI MOBO http://usa.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=yQYfAtkxxZMjR79G it supports both DDR2 and your Q8200 CPU. In the US it's $89 ~ £60.
  2. apparantly i just won a ASUS P5W DH Deluxe off ebay......i dont remember bidding for it...38 pounds tho. thats really odd.
    what about a asus striker Extreme, theres one one ebay for £77 (including postage)
  3. The Striker Extreme has NO support for the Q8200 CPU - http://usa.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=G7JoxzAEXsQwDt7G

    The MOBO I linked before is the only in production ASUS MOBO that meets all of your requirements. No, I do/will not search for out of production MOBOs.
  4. lol cheers for the heads up. i emailed the seller a question about the board before i even got close to clicking buy it now..
    and yeah i dont blame you. it is pure hell :(

    oh well its what i get for not wanting to upgrade my cpu thanks again, il see what i can dig up with the P5N-D board

    ---Edit---
