    Does anyone kno where i can get a cheap and good motherboard like under $110? I profer an Asus or an Soyo anything thats good. I just need one that is compatable AMD and i found a AMD 2500 for 88$ off Newegg.com So i am set with the processor. However i also need a good case that has a powersupply at least 450 Watts and has a glass side window. And everything my goal is supposed to be under 250$. I hope someone can help me out.

    case and mobo in one package: Shuttle XPC SN45G ;)

    but if you want a normal atx setup, Asus A7N8X Deluxe 2.0. that one will get you onboard Soundstorm audio, too.

    both of those are based on the nforce2 ultra 400 chipset. you'd be best to limit yourself to motherboards based on that chipset as it's the fastest one for amd processors.

    professor? no. processor? no.

    gotta buy the processor, memory, and drives seperate. you can pick up a professor while you're at it, if you'd like.

    Ok New Game Plan....I need a Regular Motherboard less than $110 And I found an AMD processor 2500 for $88.. My game plan right now is to get it less than $250. I already built a computer already my computer...I just wanna upgrade it. I got a Radeon 9700 Pro Tv Out With Tuner, 1024 Ram DDR, And 48 burner, DVD and such. That stuff im going to leave the same. The case is going to be the same Alieware Case with Glass on the side. I just need a new mobo and processor and i should be set with this new upgrade for my computer. If anyone can recommend me a new or good Mobo for less than 110$ a regular one it would be a great help for me..I profer an ASUS or Soyo plz. Thank you

    Ok the MSI K7N2 Delta-ILSR is very very nice...Good buy. However there is one for $79.00 (refurbished) and there is one that is $124.00 (new). And does this processor support an AMD Athlon 2500+ becuase under CPU here

    http://secure.newegg.com/app/specification.asp?item=13-130-418

    It says Socket A for AMD® Athlon™/ Athlon™ XP/ Duron™ Processor. Supports 600MHz up to Athlon™ XP 3000+ processor or higher Max. FSB: 400MHz

    So does it support a 2500+? It says up to 3000+ ...So i need an opinion on this one and i need to kno which one i should get, the Refurbished one? or the New one? Thank you.

    it's an nforce2 board, so yes. supports all 333fsb processors (anything up to 3000+). the newer ones support the 400fsb and the 3200+.

    i would get the Asus A7N8X Deluxe 2.0 ($125) instead. it's a brand you wanted to get originally and also comes with Soundstorm audio. lots of people have this board and you never hear anything bad about it.

    Hmm...both motherboards are very tempting to buy...however i will go with the ASUS becuase it is a brand that is very well respected and a motherboard i trust. Thank you.

    The Epox 8RDA is a decent nforce2 board for under $100.
