    Mobo and processor

    I need to replace the mobo on a classroom computer. The hardest work it does is play a dvd. What's the best price/performance option at present. Intel processor preferred with on-board graphics.

    Re: Mobo and processor

    You just need to replace the mobo, or you want mobo+cpu+memory etc?

    Sorry I didn't make myself clear. Mobo and processor. I only intend putting in 1GB or RAM. A recommedation for the mobo model would be handy.

    That also leads onto do you want to keep the existing case? if so what type atx, micro etc?

    Cow's milk or goats? It's an ATX case. I think I'll go for a Foxconn P4M9007MB and Intel D E2160. Suits the budget.

    Re: Mobo and processor

    Yea, foxconn sounds fine, I wouldn't personally go for a dual core cpu for something that's only lightly used

    And Cows, tried goat's milk and really didn't like it, I think it was one of the "hip" things at the time....
