best red 1155 socket motherboard?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am doing a themed build project and have all of my components besides the motherboard ordered on newegg, I was wondering if anyone could help me find a motherboard that won't break my teenage bank (<$240) and looks nice. I was looking at the fatal1ty professional but didnt find anything else that looks like it'd be worth it. it is also cool if it's black, because im getting red case accessories and white lights, just need a good color pallete other then blue, YUCK thanks guys and gals!

Howdy, If you can stretch $20 more you can get the Asus Maximus Open box on the egg.

thanks both of you! however, I overlooked their red boards because they pulled such a high premium, and that open box is tempting ^_^ the entire idea of the fatal1ty series just seems idiotic, and I've heard nothing but good from others about asus.

i'd say asus is probs your best bet, expensive, but you pay for what you get. asrock fatal1ty is actually not a bad board itself, but the looks of it just isn't my cup of tea, too much detail, as if they tried too hard to make it look pretty...if you know what i mean. the asus rog boards look much cleaner and elegant, feels very well built as well, actually they are very well built, at least my r3e is!

if you want a board now, this could be a good option, price wise and performance wise

if you can wait, i believe the maximus iv extreme is coming out soonish, AMOCO has already given the link to specs
