Q6600 - Best motherboard for this intel quad?

  athertpa 19:56 23 Mar 09

Hi all,

Can anyone recommend a decent motherboard for a max of £100 that will be ok for the next year or so (can be upgraded)???

I am a noob who desperately wants to build a pc, have decided on the processor but now I need a MOBO (just picked up the lingo!)

Thanks for your help!

I got the Gigibyte GA-P35-DQ6 motherboard with my quad core Q6600 on a PC I got built from Cougar Extreme last Feb.

It is a very good quality motherboard, I think it cost around £70, although I cannot be certain now.

When you say "that will be ok for the next year or so (can be upgraded)???". Do you mean you will be wanting to upgrade the motherboard? cause if you are it might cause problems with you OS, as OEM versions of windows normally don't allow such a big upgrade as a motherboard replacement without the need to purchase a new license, if I'm not mistaken.
