Looking for motherboard & CPU combination.

Hello,

I'm looking for a compatible motherboard and CPU from the site www.ebuyer.com

The motherboard must:
- Be able to support 2GB or more of DDR2 ram.
- Have onboard ethernet, sound and graphics.
- Support 2 ATA devices.
- Support 1 SATA device.
(It would be nice if it was a micro atx)

The CPU must:
- Be dual core.

Also, the combined cost must be around the £90 mark or less.

I'm struggling to find a combination like this - I'm sure they exist, but I'm not having much luck, so if you can help it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Uni.

Here is a decent mATX MSI Motherboard that fits into your requirements

http://www.ebuyer.com/product/131182

Here is a E2220 2.4 GHz Core 2 Dual Core CPU

http://www.ebuyer.com/product/143203

Together they will cost you £83.62

That's about the best you can get to stay within the £90 mark.

Good Luck HTH.

most of the new boards are geared towards Sata devices and only include one ATA channel.
Depending on how many IDE devices you have you could attach one CD rom and Hard Drive on same cable.

He said he needed a board that supported 2 ATA devices.   1 ATA connector will support 2 Devices as I've posted this board supports his requirements.  You are right that most boards only have 1 ATA port on them anymore and if you need more your best bet would be to get a ATA PCI Card.  Thanks for the good rating.
