    Recommend me a motherboard pls!

    Hi,
    I'm due an upgrade and need some advice/recommendations for a mobo! Going down the wolfdale route for the upgrade! Would like to do some mild to mid overclocking. Hoping to spend around 50-65ish notes, and don't need onboard gfx. Thanks in advance.

    something P35 based probably.
    Do you need RAID, firewire etc.?
    If not, something like abit IP35-E or Gigabyte P35-DS3L.

    MSI P55-GD80, i5 750

    Just completed a build with the IP 35-E from Abit. Easy board decent heat sinks for an entry level board, and as Buff has said if you dont need Firewire raid or more than 4 SATA ports its a very good mobo.

    The Dark Raider regularly comes on Today Only. I picked it up for £62 last week, very good board so far.

    For your budget of £60,the IP-35 is the way, it's a great mobo at a great price.
