    Best socket 775 motherboarf for 60 quid and under??

    After getting a HX520 PSU for testing purposes I can confirm that the BIOS of my ATI RD600 based DFI iCFX3200 is buggered. Since I bought it off Ebay I may not be able to return it either!!

    Since I now do not have loads of spare cash left to splash out on a new motherboard I am looking for the best one for sixty quid or under. I cannot go over this at all.

    I thought I would ask here as my last motherboard choice was a total disaster. I will never buy a DFI motherboard gain after seeing the amount of issues the board had!!

    I basically want it to be stable, capable of reasonable overclocking and be able to accept Penryn . I also need it to have one IDE input.

    Of course it has to be socket 775...!

    Any suggestions??
