Thread Starter 
i planned to take a core i3 2100 cpu but i am confused with which motherboard to take a H55 h61 h67. i have a low budget of $60 to $70 please help i am confused between which one to buy amd phenom II 955 BE or intel i3 2100. i will use it for gaming and video conversions, i got a perfect combo for amd but after read some articles i have second thoughts for intel. i am not getting a good motherboard for i3 2100. core i3 is better but cant overclock it please suggest a few motherboards and i would not prefer newegg because they will not ship the motherboards to India

I would love to help you, but your grammar and "bcoz" is really hard to look at. The general consensus is that the i3 will be better, and I don't understand the rest of what you are asking. Please type out whole words next time.

I prefer the core i3-2100, but it is hard to understand what you are asking.

I normally ignore the grammar on the internet, but you gave me a headache.

From what I could understand, I'd say go with the i3.

Between the three you listed, take the H67 or find a Z68.

The H67 is designed for the onboard video. The Z68 will support the onboard video and will allow you to overclock if you can upgrade to a "k-series" CPU, such as the i5 or i7. It leaves you open for future upgrades if you MUST get the i3 right now as they share the same socket and, as a Z68, you can overclock said "k-series" upgrade.

Also, if you really must get an i3 because of your budget, get an i3-2105. The integrated graphics are better than the i3-2100 (2000 vs. 3000), and it's only a couple of dollars more.
