    Motherboard to support E8400

    Looking for a cheap mobo to support the 45nm E8400, but i don't want to spend much as i'll want to go for the nehalm when it comes out. Around £30 would be nice, but i doubt that will be realistic
    As far as requirements go, cos ill be upgrading later on, just the basic supporting 800Mhz, PCI-E x16 etc

    I dunno if this is the right place, either here or the 'Find me a bargin' spot

    The reason i want one is that my mate gave me his mobo, so i bought a E8400 to go with it, but it didnt work and he cba to RMA it, so i'm looking for a new one as i want to upgrade my CPU anyway. I was looking at the P45's before i knew the nehalm was coming out so soon, as i'll want to move to that

    Yeah that's spot on, basically go for the cheapest one you can find that says: "supports Intel 45nm"
