  1. I am about to purchase this processor and need a recommendation for a motherboard. I have access to Msi, Gigabyte and Asus. I would also like to do some moderate overclocking and heard that the Nvidia chipset was good. Any suggestions are appreciated. By the way; I would like to keep the price under 110.00.

    Will you use SLI?

    Socket 939 or AM2?

    For socket 939 you may as well get an SLI motherboard because they are really cheap. nForce 4 SLI chipsets are good, the best being A8N32-SLI Deluxe from ASUS. I have a ASUS A8N SLI SE and I think it's the best motherboard I've ever had. Only cost me $120 CAD.

    For AM2... nForce 570 or nForce 590 chipsets are good... and AMDs own 690 chipset features integrated graphics with dual monitor support, HDCP, and HDMI.

    I heard that nForce 550 has some problems... the whole nForce 5 series wasn't so great. That's why they went from nForce 4 to nForce 6 series in less than a year.

    Yeah, but Nforce 6 mobos are pretty expensive.

    Consider this:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131013
    Asus M2N-SLI Deluxe (AM2)

    I've heard a bit about this board, and apparently it won Newegg's "Customer Choice" award.


    It's amazing how the information of your CPU socket has not been specified yet - even when asked. It would help our recommendations a lot if you tell us what socket you're using.

    The Topic of the post told you what socket he was looking for (Athlon 64 X2 4600+).....I would also recommend getting the Asus M2N-SLI Deluxe (AM2) just picked one up to go along with my AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200+ Windsor 2.6GHz ($200) + CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 ($168) cant beat that with a stick. Just need a VGA and i will be G2G..Hope that helps.
