    Default Which motherboard for Q6600 Quadcore?


    I have a Q6600, 775 socket, I believe. Which (non expensive) motherboard can I get to put some decent RAM and a DDR3 videocard?

    I now have this one, but it's outdated:

    ASRock > Products > 4CoreDual-VSTA

    Do you want a DDR2 motherboard to use your current memory?
    With the much lower cost of DDR3 memory, you might do better to upgrade to a newer DDR3 motherboard that supports newer cpu's.

    You could then keep your current setup as backup system.

    In the U.S., the selection is very limited for mid-level LGA 775 DDR2 systems.
    In a recent forum thread, one member is thinking of selling his E8400, DDR2 ram and motherboard for about $250, but he is in the U.S.

    If you're thinking of buying a used mobo, be sure to read detailed motherboard reviews to make sure that you're buying a high quality, full featured board that will meet your overclocking needs.
