Hey, I'm looking into putting together a budget PC. I have a decent knowledge of computers being a programmer but have never dabbled in hardware so am now going to give it a go. The motherboard I have chosen is the intel DG41TY as it has inbuilt graphics and I will not expand this until later. Can be found at http://www.intel.com...TY-overview.htm

The issue is from what I have read the motherboard cannot overclock which is something I am interested in, is it still possible if I flash the bios or by some other means?

Thanks in advance, Luke

Yeah Intel boards are good, but not the choice for overclockers. Get yourself a Gigabyte or ASUS motherboard, they'll give you much better options for overclocking.

This one is good: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16813131394

If you could spend some more, then this: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16813131377
Or this: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16813131232 would be good.

This is a good Gigabyte board: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16813128359

Fixed. :)

As for suggestions, it looks like the user is looking for a Micro ATX motherboard with onboard video...

My suggestion:
GIGABYTE GA-EG41M-US2H

Yeah, I've been looking into getting one from the Asus P5 Series, I'm just looking into where to get them from now, I'm in Australia so I can't use newegg. Thanks for your help!
