Need help on a new mobo.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi again,
Its been in my head for a while to gather up components for a complete new rig.

I am, however, stuck at deciding what motherboard I should be getting.
Maybe you guys can help me arround and list a few suitable models that could work for my needs.

I'm leaning towards a 1155 model, since i'll be getting the 2500K.
Im only gonna add ONE gpu onto my rig. I do not plan to go crossfire or SLI at all. I will simply upgrade my gpu by a newer one in the future.
Ofcourse I wouldn't mind a mobo that supports multiple slots, but if the price can be cut down enough I don't really mind settling with a mobo that has only one slot.

Secondly, Im not planning to go crazy on OC'ing. I think I might not OC it at all right now. Maybe at some point I might just increase the cpu speed a little, but nothing fancy.

Eventually, my rig will be used for various tasks. The biggest occupations will probably be gaming, graphical development and music production.

Max budget: €150

So far i'm thinking of getting one of these:

Is it worth investing €20 more for a P67 chipset, compared to my needs? Or would a H67 be sufficient enough?

Thanks in advance!

I would go for the asRock P67 Extreme4. It is a budget board with Enthusiast features! It is the best board I have ever bought - hands down.
