Need new motherboard

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I need a new motherboard for the soul reason that mine sucks. I have replaced every part in my computer except my motherboard and i still have problems so now i need a new one. Since this motherboard is MSI and they have been pissing me off to much i would rather go with an ASUS or Gigabyte motherboard. I need some recommendations because I really just want to enjoy my computer so please help. I have a budget of around $200.

I have been looking at these boards so far:

Thanks in advance if anyone does help.

The sabertooth is a very nice mobo. I like the one that I have too. So I would say go with the Asus Sabertooth.
