Im just about to start purchasing parts for a new computer that im going to build for myself, the idea is to create a reasonably well performing computer which is upgradable when i have more money.
I have already decided that the computer should be roughly this spec:
Intel Core 2 Duo - Around 2.66Ghz
2GB DDR2 RAM
500+ GB SATA Hard Drive
Intergrated Graphics ( Eg. Intel X3100, as i have no need to use the computer for gaming, although a HDMI port and the ability to play HD Video would be a big plus)
I have chosen the Coolermaster CM690 Case, and a PSU.
However, im pretty stuck for choosing a motherboard:
I was looking at an Asus P5N-E for ages, however i eventually realised that i have no need for a graphics card, id prefer intergrated graphics.
All i require from the motherboard, is:
ATX or mATX form factor
Core Duo Socket
Quite a few RAM slots (Preferably with DDR3 as an option for the future)
a FSB of 1066Mhz, (Preferably 1333Mhz)
Intergrated Graphics with HDMI Output
Some Overclocking Functionality
I just wondered if someone could recommend any motherboards which they know are good quality and meet my requirements
Thanks for your help,
