Anyone know of a good cheap processor to go with this? I just want to build a cheap HTPC and I have everything except the motherboard and processor. This looks like a pretty good motherboard for my purposes but I'm wondering if it might be better to wait on a motherboard/processor combo deal?
Not as many choices as there used to be.
The new AM3+ processors don't seem to be cheap.
AM3 at retail seems to be $65-70 & up.
Edit: Removed recommendation for a 125W processor - not for this board. Although the price of everything else makes buying an $80 125W processor, then turning off features and underclocking until you reach the power profile you want seem almost reasonable.
