I had a E6600 overclocked to 3.4Ghz on a Asus P5w-dh-delux which died on me last week. Troubleshooting seems to be a memory problem so I ordered a new stick of DDR2 which won't be here to Friday. Being pessimistic I assume that my mother board has died instead of both my memory sticks (See help with my desktop thread). I've looked for LGA775 mother boards on Newegg and found these two that I am considering. One has DDR3 and one DDR2, I'm looking at the DDR3 board since DDR3 RAM is much cheaper and could be incorporated into my next build when I am employed again.
BIOSTAR T41 HD LGA 775 Intel G41 ATX Intel Motherboard
ASUS P5G41T-M LX PLUS LGA 775 Intel G41 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard DDR
I'm looking for a board with at least 4 SATA 2 or 3 ports, 1 PCIE 16, and 2 PCI slots.
Equipment to be transferred 3 SATA-2 hard drives, ATI-HD5670, dial up modem PCI, 4port SATA controller PCI and a TDK DVD burner PATA for which I can get a $7.00 adapter from Newegg to convert it to SATA.
PATA to SATA $6.99
Thanks for your opinions and alternatives.
