I need to rebuild my system and want to use the Intel Quad Core Q6600 2.4GHz CPU, and use my existing DDR 2700 ram.
I am not a gamer, my use is just basic, no overclocking.
Can you recommend a suitable motherboard? easy to set up raid is not required But IEEE connection is because I will do video editing.
Can't go wrong with boards made by ASUS.
Very doubtfull you'll be able to re-use the DDR sticks...Can get two gigs of DDR2 for under 75 bucks.
"Vegetarians live up to nine years longer than the rest of us...Nine horrible, worthless, baconless years."
SRJ is exactly right. Your DDR is useless in anything new. I am running a pretty quick machine but I'd love to move up soon and I will. I am seeing this years tax return at the end of the tunnel. YeeHaw!!
Any Intel P35-based Asus board will be just fine.
Ideally, you want a board that can do 1333MHz FSB. That'll give you headroom for the future. The P35 boards others are recommending fit the bill.
