    mobo recommendation please

    hi

    seen as the dual vsta is driving me insane, i am going to buy a new mobo and ddr2 ram.

    can you recommend me a good little package that about £160-170 tops with 2 gig od ram if poss.

    if it's over, then thats ok. may do a little bit of o/cing but probably not.

    i want it to go with my E6300 and x850xt pe pci-e card.

    cheers!

    You are going to struggle to get some overclockable 2bg ram and an overclockable motherboard for that money I think.

    gigabyte s3 would be cheaper, its pretty much the same as the ds3 but doesnt have raid and doesnt have sold capacitors so is slightly less durable.

    gigabye s3 + 2gigs corsair value PC5300 RAM come in at just under £200. (dont need high speed ram if not overclocking)
