    What CPU do you have now, or did you plan to get a new one for sure?

    What do you want to spend?

    Why is my google product search result different then yours? GA-G41M-ES2L - Google Product Search

    Also, your like shows that 137 of those 140 reviews are from tiger direct. That makes me suspicious.

    tks, >p

    The results are the same I think I clicked the compare prices.
    I don't know about the reviews but there are still a lot of sellers.
    One thing I have found is that manufacturers will keep update BIOS/Firmeare for best or good sellers.
    Anyway for example
    Amazon: GA-G41M-ES2L + Pentium Dual Core E5400 + Kingston HyperX DDR-1066 - $192.97.
    Neweeg: GA-G41M-ES2L + Pentium Dual Core E5400 + 2 x Mushkin 991527 - $184.96

    Unless you want to go with AMD and get something even cheaper, but I don't know much about AMD.

    Compare with ASUS ASUS P5G41T-M LE Customer Reviews Of ASUS P5G41T-M LE LGA 775 Intel G41 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
    For $262 you can get GA-H55M-S2H and Core i3 530 with 2GB DDR3 1066, which is another league

    How much really do you want to spend, this will better help everyone to advise you.

    We know the "Lowest possible price", but what is that limit you want to stay under?
