This is going to be a 'budget' gaming build, in which I'll put an 8800GT and a 550W PSU (both of which currently form part of my own desktop). I have spare DDR2 800Mhz as well, so what I need to buy essentially is just a mobo and a case... I would like your suggestions for a mobo which would enable me to oc the 5000BE reasonably using aftermarket air cooler. I dunno if I'm saying something stupid (I am not much up to date on AMD.... ) but is the only choice of mobo that of an AM2+ socket or perhaps do mobos which take DDR3 still be compatible with the 5000BE? Btw, it's quite likely that unless I find a better deal I'd have to choose from the motherboards here... Thanks.
