I am currently looking to build a new PC and have decided on the CPU...

AMD CPU AM2 7850+ Black Edition Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core

microdirect.co.uk/Hom…ual

Can anybody please recommend me a decent motherboard to use this with under £100 please.

Integrated graphics with DVI, VGA and HDMI (although not essential), bout 6 USB ports, 7.1 Audio would be a plus and able to take about 8gb RAM to future proof it a bit.

Cheers.

Hi,

Thanks for the help...

I like the look of that MOBO esp with the DDR3

Dont think I can stretch that much for the processor but I imagine it could be upgraded easily in the future if need be.

How do ASROCK compare for motherboards? This is my first jaunt into the world of AMD also. Scary times.

no worries m8, have used both amd and intel for years and despite the horror stories its usually a case of you get what you pay for pound vs performance ie intel a bit quicker but more expensive.
this may be a short of a q6600 on performance but it is cheaper and so far only the £150+ 775 boards use ddr3 so look around see if you can get the cpu a bit cheaper sure it will be some where.
am just messing with a amd 4400 cpu on a cheap 6100 based board as we speak, the whole lot cost about the same as an intel 4300 cpu i had and blew it away for performance.
asrock are a subsidury of asus and im my experience do some damm fine work, have had an asrock in my main system 4 2.5 yrs now, solid.
