Hello Everyone & Happy New Year, :hello: 

I want to buy a new mobo for my old rig.
currently m having Asus P5KPL-AM/PS Mobo
Intel Q8300 C2Q Processor,
4 GB DDR 2 @ 800 Mhz

Plz suggest a good high-end mobo( high end of 2 years back :D  ) which is best for my processor.
budget is 100 $ or Indian 5000 rs.

thanks.

I asked the same thing a year ago and it took forever to get a response, the reason is this...

You won't be getting a high end 775 board for $100, period. You could get a very good refurbished board for ~180, but the prices are still high and will likely remain so. If you're desperate you could get a mATX for under 100 but then you'll obviously be limited on features, only have 2 dimms and most dont OC.



I ended up spending 3 days performing surgery on my board till it magically started to work again. If your board still works I would suggest just forgetting about swapping it out and wait to upgrade the whole system. If it currently doesn't work, then you got some tough choices to make.
