I have an AMD Phenom II X2 550 Black Edition processor that I was given a few years ago. It's just been sitting in it's box ever since and I've decided to use it as I have a lot of extra parts laying around. Only things I need are a motherboard and a case.

This is the exact cpu I got:

Any help finding a motherboard on Newegg that will work with that cpu would be greatly appreciated. I'd really like a board that will allow for overclocking and unlocking the 4 cores of the cpu.

This one is a good budget board, it supports that cpu and it's a decent board for overclocking and it can unlock the cpu cores.
Or if you want a standard atx motherboard :

Thanks for replying. I like that first one, only trouble is I got DDR2 ram and both of those only list support for DDR3. Are there any boards that would support DDR2 or am I going to need to upgrade the ram?

I recommend going with new ram, a 4GB ddr3 kit if you need it to be cheap.

Thanks again for the help. I ordered the Gigabyte board and the DDR3 ram. Both get here Thursday so looking forward to getting this set up. :)
