  • Looking for a mobo

    Posting on behalf of a friend, and possibly me if things work out

    He is looking for an 1155 board with a max price of about 140

    Looking for advice on which board people would choose if possible.

    As for myself, I would be looking at about the same price point (with the availability of taking advantage of the 1000+ offer if things move quickly enough for me to have the cash)

    I dont really want a board that costs as near to max as possible, looking for best bang for buck really.

    Both of us would be looking to use a 2500k and overclock to approx 4.5 (if possible)


    Thanks for your time.

    not sure you need to spend that much on a 1155 board unless you need something onboard.

      This. UD3H fits in the budget perfect.

          Marsey99/Dain is the board you recommended better than the 1000+ deal one? Is it worth the few quid to get the Asus?

            What 1000+ deal?

            Dunno if Asus is worth extra money, all same chipset and UD3H is one solid board.

              One of the msi boards with the 20% cash back should do nicely

                        Thats a bit poor, didnt even notice that, which removes any back up options in case of GPU failure, for the sake of a few quid.

                          Or you could buy a second hand ECS P67H2-A?
