Suggest a Motherboard?

by eruptionjoojo / March 28, 2013 11:03 PM PDT

Hello all,

I'm looking for a desktop motherboard for my DELL INSPIRON 530 Desktop which has a Foxconn G33M02 motherboard by default. Since the motherboard has gone bad i'm looking forward to swap it with a new one. My current specifications are :-
Ram :
2GB DDR2 800 Mhz
512MB + 512 MB DDR2 667Mhz
My current motherboard i.e. Foxconn G33M02 has 4 ram slots, out of which currently 3 are occupied.
Hard disk:
Intel Pentium Dual core E2160(1.80 Ghz)
DVD Drive:
"2" - SATA DVD Drives
1 Chasis Fan
1 Processor Fan
LGA 775 Socket
300 Watt SMPS
2xPCI Slots(1 Slot occupied by IEEE Firewire 1394 card & the other by TV Tuner Card)
1 PCIe 1x Slot
1 PCIe 16x Slot
1 Flexbay drive for Media card reader
You may have the complete details from the link provided below :-

I'm be willing to buy a motherboard with same specification (of any brand) and within the price range of INR 5000 or US $100. I had an option to buy the motherboard which i had by default but couldn't find it at the aforesaid price.
By the way i'm from India.

Thanks in advance to who so ever replies.

Assuming your running the Dell supplied OS.
If you change that mobo there is a good chance Msft will get upset.
That means you get to buy a new OS.

Contact Dell.....see if they can send you an exact replacement.
Install it........fingers crossed that Msft does note notice the difference.

In reply to: Problem

Thanks a lot for your reply bob b ............. but unfortunately the issue which i face is that DELL only sells 1 year warranty with this model in India and not spare parts. The warranty costs around INR 12,000/- i.e. about $240 which is the problem as i don't have that much of a budget.
