I'm have been forced to upgrade now as my 478 mobo went capute and i just don't feel like putting any more money into this computer...

... So i am totally upgrading, but i need to know whats the best mobo for the Core 2 around $100, needs to be ATX, NOT micro.... and have at least 4 DDR2 slots.

stay as far away from the ABit AB9 Pro. I have it and have never had any problems like I have with this board. I have gotten through almost all of them (except one) and would suggest the Gigabyte DS3 if you want something good and stable that would also overclock really well if you were inclined to do that.

Edit: It's about $270 ish but its the best board period for core 2 duo.

It's the best on the market, there will be more options coming out based on it.

Key feature is 3 high-speed pci-e slots.

Future-proofing is key my friend :)

screw that $270 for what, what extra features demand such a high price. My mobo that just went was the first i've ever had die on me and it was also the first machine that i didn't build myself.

Seeming that i generally only keep a pc for a yr or two at the most $270 is just too much....

Convince me?!

There will be a baser model released in the very near future which will cost a lot less and have 2 high-speed pci-e slots instead. You can always spring for that.

Consider everything will be at a premium right now because they JUST came out.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
