hey everyone, I'm looking to upgrade from my setup, a dx4860 mobo, 4x 2gig sticks of ram ( no idea on brand so probably not that great), I5 2300, stock ~300 watt power supply upgrading to a Corsair CX500 for some leeway, and a Ati hd 2600 XT ( which is going to die on me, doesnt let me play games anymore)

Looking for suggestions for a new motherboard that
1 wont break my limit (~$100)
2 has a pcie 2.0 so i can still use my dying graphics card, but
3 will also have a pcie 3.0 so i can upgrade later on
4 usb 3.0 sata 6g/s

soo yeah thank you in advance for your suggestions :hello:

Pcie 2.0 card will run in a Pcie 3.0 slot, so no worries there. $100 is pretty tight, but let me see what I can do!
How about this?
