Default new motherboard


hello playdota,

So, the as you can read from the title, I need a new motherboard.
I'm really unfamiliar with motherboards, and I need some help from you guys.

I don't really care about the brand, I just need to replace my crappy stock one.
Price range is about $50-100.

I can give you my specs, if necessary.

We need to know your processor as this determines what motherboard you need. You may as well give us your full system specs too

Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P is the top board for 775 socket really. Or GA-EP45-UD3R if no need for crossfire and no need for a double lan port.

Or you can check out http://www.downloadatoz.com/howto/to...uad,22266.html


Depends what you want from your mobo, if you want to overclock, you need a decent mobo and a good CPU cooler, if you won't overclock, get the cheapest you can find and be done with it.
