Check out computer shopper magazine matey. I think the magazine has done a review on mother boards this month.

is there any online shops which i could have a look at i have looked at ebay already but they were mostly old ones but i found some there but i want to look for the best buy

well i am not sure about an individual motherboard, ive only just started looking into this myself, where does one start, so many different makes and types and this is not my expertise.
However i have found what seems to be a good deal for motherboard kits supporting both Intel Pentium and AMD Athlon , which includes processor heatsink fan and Ram.

there is also an option to spend and extra few pounds for Watford Electronics to built and test them for you, which seems like a good idea for complete novices like myself!

Another choice for you.
Looking at the bundles I think you would be better buying them seperate as the motherboards arent the latest and best.

Komplett click here do bundles that are quite cheap but if you need to know of a good motherboard I recommend the asus A7N8X Deluxe Rev 2. I've just got one and it got to be the best out there at the moment.

I would have to agree with rusty. I purchased a ASUS A7N8X a few weeks ago and this is a good board , plenty of expansion also comes with a nvidia chipset. This is a big board so make sure case is big enough.

Check out a company called Novatech. A friend bought a mobo/processor and ram bundle from them recently. Every thing arrived well packaged, on time and with good instructions. They do loads of bundles and the prices are usually very competitive.
