I need these things for my motherboard

Socket 939 with a CPU Fan Rack (I don't want a CPU with motherboard combo, I already have a AMD CPU)
4x 400 DDR RAM Slots (I'm going have at least 2 gigs of ram)
PCI Video card slot (I'm going use a Nivida 6800 256MB)
At least 3 PCI Slots
At least 4 USB slots
Easy to use bios :).

I'm looking for one with these things! Gimme a cheap motherboard please!

Oh god, looking for a 939 motherboard is no fun..
Well...
First off, we need to get some things straight..
I do not know what you mean by fan rack..
When you say PCI Video card slot, I'm assuming you mean PCI-express.
Do you care what form factor the motherboard supports (For example, ATX, MicroATX..)

And price range..?

How's this...? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813186037

Wow thanks! By CPU Rack I mean the black part around the CPU Socket.
Now I need a Case with a 500W power supply.

I see, I'm not sure if you're aware of this, but any cpu/motherboard combo you're going to buy retail will still allow you to remove the CPU from the motherboard. The "black part around the CPU socket" can be many different colors. I believe you are talking about a retention bracket.
Don't use powersupplies that come with cases. 99% of them will be crap, no matter what brand they are.

How much are looking to spend for both, if you want, I can lead you into the right direction ;p

THanks you so much for your help :). I need a retention bracket socket 939 because my motherboard's retention bracket socket is broken. I thought you could't get retention bracket socket 939s.

Well, if you can find one online, go for it. I think eBay may have them, I haven't checked.

I just realized today that my current build (E6700, 3 Gb Ram, 8800 GTX) will probably have to see me through the next four years of college (and then some because I will be broke). IMHO, unless you plan on doing a lot of overclocking (such as with watercooling, etc.), any motherboard over $150 is just a waste of money. I probably made a mistake getting a 680i for $225 in December, because I only put the cpu @ 3.2 GHz and the DDR2 800 @ 4-4-4-12 timings with 1.9V power. I also hope your PC is homebuilt, because if it's HP, Dell, etc., they probably have a proprietary form factor, in which case a normal ATX motherboard is incompatible.

Is this (link) what you're looking for? It's amazing how typing "retention bracket" into Newegg will bring up several products. :lol:

ClansAreForGays -- I don't get it, so it just decreases? Like if I have it set to 1, it'll be zero during build. But If I have it set to 100... it's be like 50?

kgh829 -- The weird thing is that the building defense value wasn't set to Zero. If the building's defense is abnormally high, the building under construction becomes almost invincible, just like a completed building.

kgh829 -- I just tested out of curiosity, and it turns out that the defense of Zerg buildings also decreases.

ClansAreForGays -- do zerg buildings have 0 armor while morning? like how terran building do while being built?
