    Well first off I must say I found it much more difficult to choose a mobo
    this time than on any previous builds (most recent 3 years or more ago).

    My current (best PC) has been suffering various glitches over the last few
    months the latest being vpu resets during games that previously ran ok. I
    have decided cannibalise and to relegate it to a spare/server.

    Would appreciate it if those who may know better cast their eye over the
    list to see if there are any foreseeable incompatibilities or where an
    alternative is too obvious not to mention.

    Prices are approx.

    AMD 64 3200+ S939 Retail £110
    MSI K8N SLI-FI Socket 939 £75
    Gigabyte GeForce 6600GT 128MB PCI-E VIVO £95
    Crucial PC3200 512x2 (one from this PC) £28
    CoolerMaster Centurion 5 £38
    Hiper 580w Type-R PSU £60

    £100 on case and cpu seems an easy target for some cost cutting or preferred
    alternatives. If so I tend toward understated rather than flashy. A spare
    400w PSU may even be sufficient initially and the Hiper PSU is to be sourced
    separately anyway.
