    Hi folks,

    My mobo has officially died and I was wondering if you have recommendations for a motherboard to replace it with? The shop are offering to install a Asrock N68C-S UCC, but I've been reading mixed reviews. Is there anything more modern that is a good contender for the ASUS.

    I'm looking for something that is compatible with my existing hardware which is:

    AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core +4600
    992 MB RAM (2 x 2gb Corsair ddr2)
    NVIDIA GeForce 6150
    Barracuda 7200.10 Ultra ATA/100 250GB
    M-Audio 2496 Soundcard
    Windows XP Service Pack 3

    Thanks

    There won't be much too much more modern as both the CPU and memory are behind the current generation. The selection of new boards that would be compatible are low on most sites, here's an example: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...Value=3879:27158&PropertyCodeValue=3879:27244

    If you don't mind reinstalling Windows then you can switch to an AMD chipset, the ASRock A785GM-LE, but another nVidia board might be a just a drop in replacement.

    You might look on some of the auction sites. Though it has been awhile, I used to purchase a lot of back-generation stuff at ubid.com. There's always ebay; you'll certainly find something there.
