    Best Mobo for 100 pounds.

    Hiya
    I'm about to build a system but im not sure which motherboard to get. I've ordered an X800 GTO2 (what a bargain!), i was going to get the asus a8v-sli delux, but it's a bit pointless paying more for sli if im not going to be using it.
    What's the best board to get? I don't really want to wait for the crossfire boards to come out either....could take a while to come out!!
    Cheers

    Well what do u want in a board? Do you want it to be NForce 4 or are u planning on using an agp card for a while? Intel or amd? ill assume AMD

    The ABit AN8 Ultra has a heat pipe system so its a good choice for a quiet machine

    Asrock do a board using the ULI chipset so you can use and agp card and then upgrade to PCIE later only about 50 notes too!

    Asus A8N- I know u dont want it but they do thia one with SLI and everything else u should need, firewire 7.1 sound, sata 2 and plenty of usb ports etc. for under a ton good vaule and should be very stable

    Theres also an MSI board KN8 platinum that gets a good amount of praise round here, the MSI boards we use in work have been fine after a good few months

    Isn't the GTO2 he's said he's ordered PCI-E? So AGP would be irrelevant.....

    As to what mobo, it really depends on what socket you want, by the looks of you sig you'll be upgrading your mobo and cpu, so I would suggest a S939 mobo with the best cpu you can get. The Asus A8N board does like very nice, especially the premium version, though a bit pointless, the DFI LanParty UT NF4 Ultra-D (Socket 939) PCI-Express Motherboard also looks nice. The MSI Neo4's also seem to be good boards (http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatal...ocket_939.html , the 3rd one down)

    I'd go for either DFI, MSI or Asus and get the best you can.
