    Aloha,

    Is there a mATX motherboard that will accomadate a Q6600 (pushing to 3.ghz underwater) and 8gigs of RAM a high end G-card etc.. for less than £100

    i have found this one, but would like some advice, as im almost sceptical about whats left out or reduced on a mATX (if anything...)

    if mATX suitable for my needs? or would a full ATX have more advantages?

    I have that board in my LAN build, but really havent gotten around to doing much with it. It works well with everything I use it with. I'll mess around with OC it later maybe.
