    Are you going to overclock?

    If your looking to do some light overclocking then look at the asus range as they are ok for medium overclocks and are very stable boards.

    If your going to be doing heavy overclocking then check out the EPOX range of motherboards these are the 2nd best overclocking boards next to DFI.

    There is also the DFI infinity range of mobo's which are priced at 60 - 70 quid.

    You can pick up an Epox 9NPA+ Ultra for £69 inc. VAT from a competitor. I am very happy with mine, highly overclockable, stable as a rock and those 3 LEDs look great if you have a window :)
