hey i couldnt exactly find what i was looking for in the threads...so can someone tell me the best or a really good motherboard that can support a dualcore cpu, is good and stable for overclocking....and hopefully cheap? as in a great bang for the buck, im on a tight budget lol...oh and with a LGA775 socket..... thanks.

edit: actually screw everything else lol i just want the cheapest stable motherboard that can handle dual cpu, pentium d processor in particular, and an nvidia graphics card lol...

Sure, P965 is cheaper, but only a few dollars. Just get a good P35 board such as one of these:

Or something similar. That last one is a great buy right now! Overall, there's absolutely no reason to buy a 965 right now. The P35's are extremely close in price (in some cases less!), overclock better, and have slightly better performance because of the updated DDR2 controller. Plus they're a bit more future-proof. Good luck!

Ye a, but what's the point in a 945 that can't overclock AT ALL and doesn't support newer processors when for 10 bucks more you can get an ABIT IP35 that'll hit 500FSB???

however i was looking at the gigabyte website...and under the compatible list of cpu's for some reason i didnt see pentium d processors...only pentium 4, and the newer dual/quad cores.... the processor i ordered was a pentium d 805, 2.66 gHz.... it does support it right?

edit: actually nvm lol my bad. it does.
