what would you require
PCI-E?
AGP?
How many ram slots?
price?
#2
To be perfectly honest im not too sure. Eventually i'll probably have about 4gb ram. so 4 slots. and for the other too options not a clue. Looking around £70 if possible. Also looking to overclock if possible with this cpu
#4
It doesn't say it supports core 2 quad. Does it matter as long as the socket's the same?
#5
Im not sure you'd have to get that confirmed but im about 60% sure it would be okay.

Because most things that wernt vista ready are..
#7
Yeah it is, but the £60 one is good too and half the price.

If you're going quad core, definately dont be going AGP - it's old skool compared to the new quad core technology!

You definately want to be able to support 4GB+ on the board, along with SATA II preferably.

It's gonna be DDR2, whatever the story, so go for the best you can get in your budget.

Have a scour around at the various forums and review sites out there, for example Hexus: http://www.hexus.net and their forums http://forums.hexus.net for information on the most stable motherboards for what, I'm presuming, is going to be a gaming machine.

Also, bear in mind that 95% of games out there still don't even use dual core, let alone quad core, so unless you're crunching numbers or processing 3D using Maya or 3D Studio Max, its probably a waste of money.

Well i just want to get somethign that's going to last me a while instead of having to upgrade all the time. Thats why im going for quad core
#10
So can anyone recommend a mobo from ebuyer for a quad core cpu?
#11
Personally i would go for the ASUS P5N-E (http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/125082) It supports Quad Core and is a really good overclocker. I managed to overclock my E6600 from 2.4GHz to 3.4GHz extremely easily. Make sure you have a good powersupply though or all your attempts will be in vain. It is in your price range as well, google it and check out all of the good reviews.

Ok cool think i'll go for that mobo seems alrite. What would you say is a good power supply? Thanks

It doesn't say it supports core 2 quad

Found this in the review section on ebuyer.
I actually ordered:-

QuickFind Code: 113965 | Mfr part #: 90 MBB4E5 G0EAYZ

but received this motherboard instead. As far as I can tell it is identical to the earlier item apart from the packaging which indicates that it supports Core 2 Quad cpus as well as Core 2 Duo.
