    If you did a search this question has been asked many times before.

    The best single graphics slot 754 pci-e board in my opinion is the Abit NV8 nForce4 4X (Socket 754) PCI-Express Motherboard (MB-080-AB) at £46.94 on here. Good performance, decent layout and a very good overclocker. Stay away for the Asus mobo's as they are not as good as their 939 counterparts and i have heard of many problems with the 754 Nforce 4X boards.

    If you want to go Sli in the future then you only have two choices. The Epox 8NPA sli (same as mine) and can be had for £61 now, or the Asrock SKT-754 K8SLI-ESATA2 S/L SLI which uses the ULI chipset and can be found for as little as £38.58.

    The DFI NF4X is probably the best for overclocking, but hard to find in the UK.
