Motherboard help (building new system)

  Multi_sheep 13:51 24 May 2008

Hey guys,

I'm in the pre-production stage of building my own PC for gaming and just wanted your advice on a motherboard.

I'm trying to keep to a budget and really dont want to spend more then £70-£80 on a motherboard. I don't really have the desire to overclock (partly because Im quite in-experienced and dont really know how) so I'm not looking for a high profiled motherboard but if possible, gives the chance to overclock a little.

All I want from the motherboard is:

- To be able to Sli Nvidia cards (2 x 8800GT)
- Supports 1066Mhz DDR2 RAM
- Supprots 1333Mhz Front Bus (for E8xx series CPU's)

Have any ideas? I've looked and don't really know what I'm looking at :/

Thanks for any replys!
