I was recommended this mobo
http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Products...rboard&ProductID=2373&ProductName=GA-M61PM-S2
for amd and liked it.

But suppose I would want an e6300, does seem like a really good value.

What mobo would be similar to the one listed above for Intel Duo Core:
integated video
1 pcie x16 (no agp, no sli)
2-3 pci slots
(don't care about pcie x1 or x4)
firewire
3+ usb connectors (on board)
ddr2 800 (or 667)
dont plan on overclocking

under $100

The first three mobos will do. Asus, Abit, DFI.

i don,t understand your post - u have e6300 and a am2 mobo?

i will say this, u should spend on the psu and mobo - extra features like high quality sound and wifi on the $200 mobos is worth quite bit.

Yep it is a bit confusing.
His question is - What mobo would be similar to the one listed above?
It is a AM2 mobo that has all the features that he mentioned.

I guess his comment is also this - But e6300 does seem like a really good value.

I would spend my money on e6300 and a lga775 mobo it is way to go these days (Price/Performance). If you got the money an upgrade is worth it.

Yeah, sorry about that. I was set to get AM2 mobo and X2. But after reading some threads, X2 would have to be quite a bit less money to equal performance/price of E6300 or E6400. I don't need cutting edge, but seems almost a waste spending on AM2 and X2. Hadn't realized how low Intel priced these chips.
