  1. Hello Im looking to put together a fairly decent gaming machine.

    so far i have a core 2 duo E6400
    and i am looking to put in the 7900GT

    mainly im looking for a mobo that is between 100$ - 200$. ive searched around newegg and tigerdirect but i cant settle on one. any help would be appreciated.


    oh btw will a 500w power supply be enough for this type of machine?

    Any of the Asus P5B line will suit you fine....

    Also lots of people reccomend this Gigabyte board so its worth a look see..

    And yes a 500 watt psu will be good enough, just as long as it is a good name brand like enermax, silverstone, OCZ, antec or pc power and cooling. Just make sure you dont go hog wild about a 500 psu that comes with any case you are buying. Those PSU's are gererally junk and dont hold up. So buy the PSU of the mentioned brands and buy a case without a PSU
