I Have an older Pentium D 930 that i need to use, im (attempting) to build my moms boyfriends daughter a birthday pc, but idk what MoBo to buy, nothing expensive, i just need it to be compatible with this processor, can someone point me towards one please??
You will need a socket 775 motherboard. At retail, they are expensive. Look on e-bay if you must be really cheap.
The DDR2 ram which it needs costs more than modern ddr3 ram.
You will also need a graphics card.
I think I would build based on a newer gen cpu,motherboard, and ram, depending on what parts you already have.
The D 930 has a passmark rating of 678, the cheapest socket 1155 chip, the $50 G530 is 2242
