The minimum you are looking for for a good motherboard is at least 140 and if you want one to overclock your e6400 your basically looking at that D3 as your best option however go to a local computer store you will get mobo's cheaper then anything tiger direct has.

I'm not looking to over clock to just one that will hold it and not be holding back on the power. And I do not have a local computer store that I know of I will buy from new egg or another one and I guess 140 is not bad but I would like less but eh can't do anything about that. :whistling: .

asus p5ld2 rev 2.0 is compatible its the board i currently have it was 140 its a good board 4 channel ddr2, pcie x16, gigabyte lan, comes with a whole pile of asus tech software, including inside windows environment bios upgrade, but it has to be a 2.0 version otherwise the board wont support the core 2 so be very careful to check the board version before buying it.

If you go to newegg and search for intel-compatible mobos. Then search for socket LGA 775. In the description for the mobo, it will tell you what type of CPUs the mobo will support. Anyone that says Core 2 Duo or Conroe will support the e6400. That doesn't mean that it's a good board, just that it will support your CPU.

If you're not looking to overclock too much and you're not interested in SLI, then something like this should work fine:

K thanks and installing a mother board is that hard?I'm getting a new case as well so should I place the new mother board in the new case then just swap everything I need from the old computer to the new one? And you have to install windows again as I have heard.
