    I am thinking of going with the int. Conroe E6600, but now I need some ideas on what MB I should get or whats good out there? I never been so great on the MB, but I am looking for one that can hold at less 2 (hopfully more, with more memory slots) GHz of ram, 3 PCI slots and is less then $150 USA for a gaming computer. I saw one but I didnt know if it be any good for what I am trying to go for, maybe take a look?
