    Personally I'd recommend an ASUS board, something like an A7N8X

    On a given day or given circumstance, you think you have a limit.
    And you then go for this limit and you touch this limit and you think "Ok, this is the limit".
    As soon as you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further.
    With your mind power, your determination, your instinct and the experience as well, you can fly very high.

    Look in his sig.


    But btw, with 250, you can buy a 2500+, and still have 140 left over to buy a HIGH end motherboard.

    Anyway, your budget still puts you on the High end of the market.

    Thats the DFI Lan Party NFII ULTRA B.

    Its top of the line, greatest of the overclocking boards in alot of people opinion, and for your extra buck you get alot of extras. I havnt met one person who dislikes their DFI's.

    Does that mean you can spend up to &#036;250 on a mobo, or is that for the mobo AND the graphics card?..The ASUS A7N8X-E deluxe is very good. The DFI lanparty also is.

    I would get the ASUS board 4th gen recommended, or the non deluxe version if you dont need SATA and RAID. The DFI is cool...but why the hell would you make the board look cool and black..and put LIME GREEN slots on there...maybe there UV or something..but still lol

    quick questions

    1) wot does RAID and SATA stand for and wot do they mean? (sorry, newbie when it comes to motherboards)

    2) this Asus mobo (deluxe) is &#036;312.73 NZ (dont worry bout the price in terms of US/CN &#036;&#036 (its about &#036;200-&#036;250 US)

    is that a good mobo, will it last me a long time? what the difference between the deluxe Asus A7N8X-E and just the normal Asus A7N8X-E?
