The link on the MB is no good anymore.

If it was that abit 915 chipset, I wouldn't buy it. You can do much better than that.

Personally I wouldn't buy an intel chipset. I've been throuh a 915 and a 945 and both were crap. I will only buy nforce for intel chipsets now.

If you want to check out my board, see my specs.

Also, what exact cpu is it?
Intel pentuim d 630

Can you reccomend a good cheap mobo that is ment for just gaming, not oc'ing?

Ok, so if that mobo is compatable with the cpu I told you and this
ddr2 sdram PC4300 (266MHZ)

Then I will order it with everything else.
The dvd burner I posted on page 2
Matting on page 2
CPU Cooler page 2
floppy drive page 2
and the fans page 2.

Ok..hold on...........there is no such cpu. Pentium D has no 630 and the 630 is a pentium 4.

You'd better check what cpu it is before you go much further.

Ok

That isn't a pentium d.........it is a pentium 4.

I would forget the abit board. First of all the 915 chipset sucks. Second the abit boards have gone downhill over the last year.

Here is what I would suggest.

ECS C19-a SLI

or

MSI P4n Sli-fi

both of these will support DDR2 and your cpu.

But you need to research each board on their websites and make sure they are what you want.

I have the Scythe Katana 775 installed on mine right now. It is really nice. I'm at 3.5ghz OC and it is a cool 40c.

I noticed that EIST is enabled on that cpu and board. That crap should be shut off whatever board you end up with.
Yes I will shut it off when I get the board

By the way, Im getting the board you have the ecs c19-a SLI

All those items come up to a 161$ budget, just what I needed.:)

You will like that board. The northbridge fan runs at about 4700rpm and you can't hear it.

There are 2 bios updates on their website in the last 2 months and a set od driver updates. The Sata driver update fixes a problem that didn't allow NCQ to be activated and they have fixed that.

My daughter is watching Pirates of the Car. off of my hard drive across our wireless right now while I'm typing and I can't even tell. It is a sweet chipset.

If my calculations are correct, you should be able to Overclock that 630 up to 3.75 ghz on that motherboard with that cooler and it will run really sweet!!.

Give me a yell when you get it all put together if you need any help!

When you set up that cooler. Aim it at the back of the case so it blows the heat toward the back exhaust fan. That will keep everything nice and cool. Also if there is a side vent on that case, I would suggest an intake fan there. The last fan can be in the front and contrarty to what people will tell you, have it blowing out to take out the heat from the hard drive. Then one little trick i learned is to open one slot in the back to allow air to be sucked in across the video card cooler. Since there will be negative air flow due to 2 fans out and one fan in, it will pull air in that slot across the vga card and cool it really nicely.

I do need to keep this all straight in my head. I'm helping another guy on another forum who has the same board with an 805 in it. So don't let me get confused LOL!!

Edit..... one more nice thing about that board.

It has 2 ide ata 133 connections and a floppy connection and 4 sata connections. That makes it so your CD/DVD is on a completely different controller from your IDE hard drives (if you have any).
