Hey forum. I was just looking at parts for the new computer I am building and cant seem to find a good 3-4 cpu socket motherboard. Can anyone help me find a motherboard that has 3-4 cpu sockets and costs up to 150 dollars? Thanks.:D

You won't find any at that price range. Why not just get a normal motherboard with a quad-core?

One thing is a motherboard with one CPU socket for a multiple core CPU, another thing is a motherboard with multiple sockets. From what I read, he wants a multiple socket motherboard, which he definitely won't get for 150 bucks. He can however get a pretty decent motherboard with one socket at that price, and get a decent quad-core CPU, for instance the Q6600.

Whats the cheapest possible 3-4 socket motherboard. After I took a second look I found out that I have up to 350 but I still just want the cheapest. I dont care who makes it and Im in the US of A.

2 really quick things are.

1. What is the best mother board for under 350 dollars?

2. Can a LGA 771 cpu fit in an LGA 775 socket ( because it looks like it could).

1.i don't know how to answer to the first question. the asus motherboard i said was told me to be the best in price vs quality.
2.ofcourse not

that is quad core with means 4 cores on a SINGLE chip/processor
he wants something like

with more sockets

and as everyone pretty much already suggested
forget about it (1 socket is enough for you)
you arent going to utilise it's full potetial i guarantee you
and if you really want to get into performance and stuff look into CUDA/ATIs equivalanet/intel upcomming larabee (todays gpus are general ggpu) i am sure you aren;t going to program that anyway :)
