Two choices.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm in the process of building my first Intel system and bought the 2500k about 30 minutes ago and now I need to choose a motherboard but I'm struggling to decide between two choices. The Biostar TP67XE or the MSI P67A-GD53. Both are around the same price and both have good reviews and decent overclocks. Anyone want to way in and give me their opinion or other recommendations? I'd prefer not to spend any more than £110 but may be willing to go over that.

I appreciate the help.

I've heard nothing but good things on the Biostar boards lately, but if you plan on doing lots of OC'ing, then go for the Gigabyte board because of the VRM heatsinks
