Question

Posted

I bought my current motherboard and processor around six years ago and in the intervening six years I haven't kept up with the hardware side of things.

I think my motherboard is on it's way out and want to replace it.

I'm looking for recommendations for motherboards and processors to buy.


My current motherboard is an Asus M2N32 sli deluxe with an AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200+ 2.6 GHz processor.

Looking to spend at the most

What are you looking for? AMD again? ATX or m-ATX? On-board graphics? DDR3?

No modern motherboard sockets still support DDRII, it's all DDRIII now, your best bet is to sell your DDRII and buy some DDRIII, it's surprisingly cheap (the 8 gig kit I have cost under

Damn, I have been out the game to long. Thanks Javik, I'll have a look and save some more pennies up then.

My current mobo has six so if it's got at least six I'm cool with that.

My dollars to pounds sense isn't too great, but I'm thinking for that price a Pentium G2120, or the low end Ivy Bridge Core i3 and a decent Ivy Bridge motherboard. The B75 series motherboards are reasonably priced, and pretty solid compared to the low end Sandy Bridge boards.

Assuming your needs are being met with a six year old CPU now, you don't need anything high end, and with a 1155 board, you could upgrade the CPU to an i7 down the line once they're old hat.
