    BioStar cheap mobo, any use?

    I'm looking at a BioStar G31-M7 for a E5200 and was wondering if anyone has any experience of the board, or BioStar boards in general.

    I'm not looking to do anything amazing on it, overclock the E5200 to about 3ghz and i'd be chuffed, especially for the price of it.

    Could you stretch to this one? http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Gigab...-SATA-RAID-ATX
    I've got that and an e5200 and it's trundling along nicely at 3.33ghz and 1.35v. I think I haven't been that lucky with my CPU either so I wouldn't be surprised if you could make an R0 stepping one go faster!

    Yeah I could unfortunately I live in Northern Ireland and shipping costs from scan and ebuyer are a pain, and the local store only has that BioStar one for under 60 quid.
