Default Good Motherboard

Hey,

lookin at getting a intel 2.8 ghz northwood and just oc it to 3.0 or around that. And i have budget, 800 $. the mother board im looking that P4C800-E DELUXE is abit price for me (15 year old working 12 hours a week, 6$ an hour). And i need a computer bad. So Anyone have a good motherboard as close to or higher preformance as the P4C800-E DELUXE with a price tag less then 140 ? (Has to be good for gaming to)

Thanks

Ohh yeah, would u suggest a ti4600 128mb over a FX5700 128 ?

Later
Kevin

An Abit motherboard for overclocking, or a up-to-date MSI board, as they are getting a lot better for OC'ing.

Personally I would recommend a 128MB ATI Radeon 9600 XT.

If you are really under budget, why not get an AMD one instead of Intel? The performance isn't much worse and its much cheapter..

i dont have the best of luck with AMD, two amp XP chips one didnt work when i first got it, when i reciveve the replacement i used it and it ran nice, but then the cpu fan stopped and the chip overheated.... or at least i think it did..... was super hot, and didnt work ? plus i just really like Intel abit more.... preferance.
