    Motherboard Recommendations (Was "Bwbrewco")


    Hi Folks, I'm in the middle of a new build, I will be using an intel E8500 cpu and a velociraptor Hd, I need some recommendations for a motherboard in the $300.oo( US) range, so I can smoke the tires once in awhile. I'm not a gamer but am looking at power and upgradibility down the road! I was thinking about a ASUS p5e3 or simular like a 790i. Thanks Tom

    I built two core 2 quads on P5E recently and I've been building on Asus boards for a long time they've always been reliable (never had to return one).
