View Full Version : cheap p3 motherboard
08-17-2000, 07:07 AM
I don't know if this is good and I'm not sure if it is of an ATX form. If this is not a good buy..does anyone know where I can get a really cheap motherboard that has about 4 pci slots, agp, slot1 cpu...and no integrated video/sound. I am very open to any choices..I just need on quick. Thanks

the technical specs on the page you linked mention the mobo being of an atx form factor.

I know you don't want to hear this, but fork over the extra $50 for a REAL motherboard. That board is based on the old Via 133 (not 133A) chipset. In other words, it sucks. Get a MSI BXMaster or a SOYO 6BA+100. A motherboard is too important to cheap out on.

What are some good motherboards that aren't too expensive? I don't plan on doing much overclocking. I just need about 3 pci slots and an agp slot, and a slot1 for my p3-450. Any ideas anyone? Any place you recommend to get it from? Thanks.

You're welcome cheapo. Well, at pricewatch.com I saw the AOPEN AX6BC (which is a very good motherboard), for a mere $55 plus $10 shipping. Buy that. Bar none. In fact, don't wait, do it now. NOW! GO! BUY IT NOW! AHHHH!! IMPULSE BUYING!! AHHHH! MUST BUY! *&@!%$*&!!!!!

Haha,.. you read my mind. Actually, I ordered the board Thursday night. When I was looking for the Soyo and the BXmaster, I ran into that one. I saw it exactly on pricewatch too. I wanted to post the deal out for anyone else who might be interested...but I decided to see if I actually got the product first. But I'll keep you guys updated if I do get it. IT's a great deal.
