    I need a board for a budget upgrade for a friend,everything else is bought apart from the board.

    Their specs when its built will be:

    CPU: E2160 1.8ghz (hopefully i will OC to around 3ghz)
    Board: TBD
    GFX: Geforce 8800gts 320mb
    Ram: 2x1gb Corsair 6400
    Monitor: 19" CRT

    I know its not a hugely powerful beast but it should enable them to play new games at reasonable settings,as they've spent the last 5 yrs playing games on hardware that's at least 4 gens behind the current.

    Budget is low unfortunately about £60 ish and the only 2 boards ive found that look reasonable are both MSI :)

    P43 - http://www.ebuyer.com/product/148024


    P31 - http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=MB-095-MS

    To be honest i would have preferred to get them a P35 but seems they are now rather expensive and well out of budget :(

    which of the 2 would u suggest is better ? or any alternatives within the price range.
