    Hello..I am looking to buy I new Motherboard and processor. Currently I have a old SiS mobo that has becoem outdated now. I wish to get one with DDR and onboard LAN, audio, and preferably firewire connections. I don't have too much to spend, so it needs to stay around 100 US.


    And also, Which processor would be Good for use with the motherboard? And I would like to do some overclocking, so I would like a BIOS that supports the usual options.

    Thank you for you time, and if theirs any more information you need please let me know.

    Thanks alot,

    Thank you, but that is a little over my price limit. Especially since I have to purchase a processor too. I do not need raid. Also, I do not need extremely high performance parts. Maybe a cheaper motherboard with 512 mb of ddr. And I am looking for either an Intel or AMD, both which need to be overclockable and under 2 gigahertz.

    I would like the motherboard to be around 100. 512 mb of ram is enough since this is DDR. So the ram can be however much it needs to be. And also the processor should be below or around 2 gigahertz, and whichever is cheaper and/or compatible with this mobo, out of AMD or Intel.

    Thank you...The processor can be faster though. I know I said 2 gigahertz but my curent one is 1.3 so unless that can be pretty seriously overclocked a higher one is preferred. Also, is the "CMOS Reloaded" feature on this one

    a feature that lets you reset back to BIOS defaults if you overclock and get into trouble? Is it software or hardware method?

    First of all...if you want a 2ghz for an amd...thats gonna cost you around 200-300. A 2500+ is good enough because you can overclock it, since 100 and under is your budget, what more can you ask for! Your link doesn't work by the way, and all motherboards today can reset the bios.
