    Which scoket 775 motherboard: £50 to £60?

    Scan seem to be out of stock of the Abit IP35-E. I need to buy a motherboard for a new build within a week as all of the other components will be with me by this weekend. I had the Abit IP35-E in mind but would be happy for alternative suggestions.

    Which motherboard has a decent number of USB ports, can take all sorts of heatsinks, will support Intel dual-core and quad-core (socket 775) CPUs, will take up to 8MB of RAM and is well-built, well laid out and costs £50 to £60? I'm nit too bothered about overclocking capability - I just need it to run cool, quiet and 100% stable.

    [Edit] Oops - typo in title which I can't edit!

    ^ That's on preorder too, and slightly overbudget.

    if it has to come from SCAN & be in that price range you are struggling.
    How about Computer hardware and software at amazing prices, available online from Scan Computers UK ? again slightly over budget though.

    ^ That's not a bad suggestion, BUFF. It doesn't _have_ to come from Scan. I just prefer to order from Scan but the stock situation is poort at the moment with the Abit mobos, apart from the IP35-Pro which would be overkill for my build and overbudget.

    the stock situation looks poor on about 1/2 of SCAN's P35 mobos ...

    never used them but Abit IP35-E Intel P35 1333FSB Motherboard - Socket LGA775 - AWD-IT.CO.UK & MicroDirect have the IP35-E in stock.

    Dark Raider - Cheap and cheerful but will do all you want
    The specs are pretty good for the price and it plays nicely

    ^ Thanks, Andy. I ordered the Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L from Scan. There's a good review of it on X-bit Labs and it performs very well compared to my more costly Abit IP35-Pro:

    isn't that the 1 where they fried the ATX12V1 connector with a quad?
    I'm sure that board was out of stock when I checked earlier.

    No probs, i have an earlier gigabyte board with the P-35 chipset and have been most impressed, Can't fault it
    Not bad really when i just got the cheapest board with the P-35 chipset, it was £45 at the time, they don't sell the s3 on scan anymore though.
