That is a AM3 board. Way out of budget though. Too bad, Quad Crossfire.

I just don't want to get a AM3 only board because they are more expensive and only run DDR3, which is also more expensive and the only difference. So there really is no point because I just want to run DDR2.

Unless I get an open box like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16813131366R

But even then I'd have to buy cables and other sh.t, so it would be just as expensive.

You would be surprised at some of the prices. DDR3 has come down considerably in price the last year or so.

Alright, just placed the order. This is what I went with.

CPU
Motherboard
RAM
Case

Newegg is having a sale on memory (all memory 15% off) so I got the RAM for $9 off.

Next paycheck I'll be picking up a CPU cooler and some case fans to finish it off.
