The last time I bought a budget mobo was Gigabyte P35-DS3L based on many recommendation from people here. It works fine and rock solid until now, can do some overclocking too.
I have the following so far
- OCZ 500W PSU
- 2GB OCZ DDR2-800
- EVGA 8600GT
Total $62 for above, deals at newegg.
I have a Pentium D Dual Core lying around so the new budget mobo must be compatible with Pentium D up to C2Q if possible. Will upgrade later in a few months to C2D/C2Q and Sata hdd but for now I want to use Pentium D. Please recommend me one with same performance and budget as P35-DS3L. thanks!
