    I need a new mobo since my old ASUS A7N8X E Deluxe was damaged, I will also be replacing my ATI9800 Pro with a Leadtek 6600 GT 128MB. What would be a decent £70-£100 mobo for me to buy?

    here are my future specs

    AMD3200+ 2.4Ghz
    Geforce 6600GT 128MB
    1Gb dual channel DDR400 memory
    40gb hard drive

    I'm guessing it's AGP + Socket A? If so i don't think overclockers stock any Skt A motherboards on here. As for the graphics... i'm hoping you're aware there wont be a huge leap in performance going to the 6600GT?

    I wont be buying a new mobo and Im aware of the performance leap but my 9800 pro cooler is getting too hot and I was am getting lock ups and crashes so I bought a Zalman cooler and a 6600GT. One more question, and Ill also be needing to anew PSU to replace my old 230v, how would the one here at the bottom be and wold it support the Socket A mobos and IDE hard drives? http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatalog/Hiper.html

    I'm fairly sure it supports Socket A. And IDE hard drives take the same power connector as all the other bits and bobs, molex :)
