Hey Guys,

I will be helping my friend build a new computer. I dont know too much about single card motherboards. Which ones should I look at for intel processors? I would like to go with DDR2 since they are much cheaper than DDR3 and I heard that right know there isnt much of a performance difference. He is looking at Q6600 right now since they are affordable. Might not overclock just yet either. Is $150-$175 good price point?

Thank for all your help
