Hi Guys,

I've got two new hard drives 2TB and 3TB and need them working with my existing linux system but unfortunately, my current motherboard which is listed below doesn't recognize the drives. I want to replace the motherboard with something more modern and would like that to fit in with the existing CPU (AMD Athlon 3200+).

Can someone suggest me a motherboard that I can opt-in for.

Cheers,
D

Sorry, but Socket AM2/2+ boards are not for sale anymore, unless you can source one second-hand. Socket AM3 boards will not support your CPU since they are mechanically incompatible.

Best option would probably be to get an entry-level AM3 board + CPU + DDR3 RAM. You could even go for the Socket FM1 APU with on-chip graphics.

That's bad. What is the best entry level high performance board any specific models from ASUS etc. I need gigabit network and sata performance. This CPU will be a headless linux system. I want to keep the costs to a minimum.

Cheers,

The options are legion; it depends on how much you are willing to spend. For starters, you can check the Asus website and sue the "Compare" feature to pick a few boards and compare their features. If you find a likely model, check your local retailer for prices.
