Hi,

Im just building a new system with the following components and was wondering what mobo you guys would suggest. Trying to keep it fairly cheep but it should last :D just give me a range of suggestions in different price ranges.

Innovision 3D 8800GTS 320MB GDDR3 DVI PCI-E Graphics Card £143.78 ($290)
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 (2.4GHz 1066MHz) Socket 775 L2 8MB Cache (2x4MB (4MB per core pair)) £144.30 ($290)
Seagate ST3500630AS 500GB Hard Drive SATAII 16MB Cache 7200RPM - OEM £52.93 ($106)
Corsair 2GB Kit (2x1GB) DDR2 675MHz/PC2-5400 XMS Memory Non-ECC Unbuffered CL4(4-4-4-12) £44.24 ($88)
Casecom Black Mid Tower Case - Front Blue LED 120mm Fan - With Side Window £15.31 ($30)
Casecom 500W 12cm Fan - 20+4pin, ATX12v, 4x Molex £12.75 ($26)

(if anyone can suggest better components for apprx the same price that would be great as well (especially the ram... i have no idea what im getting with ram)

get a P35 chipset mobo - they start at about £65 for an abit IP35-E which is a very good basic (no RAID, no firewire) mobo. It also overclocks very well.
If you do want to overclock try to get DDR2 6400 (or higher) RAM instead of 53/5400.

Do you seriously intend to trust £100s of pounds of components to a £15 PSU? The PSU is the foundation of your system - get a decent 1.
