    Take a look at the reviews on www.tomshardware.com, www.anandtech.com and the gamer sites. Most are quite helpful. If your budget for both CPU and motherboard is $250, you cannot afford much. For board alone, you should do OK.

    Seemingly solid motherboard (based on the reviews and listed specifications anyway). Doesn't even break $100 with shipping ($96.57).

    If you can afford the extra couple dollars, go with a Q6600.
