Motherboard Choices

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to upgrade to a p67 sandybridge soon. Wanting to get the 2500k. Quite limited budget here. For motherboard I'm not gonna pay more than 130 as there seems to be decent ones at that price. This is the one I like:

Thoughts??

Also p67s run cool and you don't have to worry about them? I noticed a lot don't even have heatsinks. Yes I'm going to OC.

Hah, I understand that it's just if you really want a good long term board I would try and up the budget. Just a suggestion.

This one will fit your budget
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16813131703R

this one a little bit pricier

These are open boxes but ASUS honors warranty by serial number I believe

$20 more and that is a hell of a lot better than the MSI board.

Hybrid... I know how to use Newegg XD. And anyways, what makes the Asus better besides being a lovely Asus? XDI just hate how Asus positions their expansion slots, makes most unusable. Plus the Asus doesn't have an onboard On/Off or reset from what I'm seeing.

Also, a p67 seems to be a better choice for me.

The P8p67 pro should suffice? I mean they're is basically no difference between pro and vpro I believe? Well at least if there were it wouldn't be a giant leap.
