Need help getting a new motherboard

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Hello, I am an extreme amature with computer parts, however, I know I need a new motherboard. My old one was an Asus P8P67-M REV 3.0 with the New P67 B3 Revision. I was told by the guy fixing my computer to find a motherboard with the same sort of specs. Any help will be appreciated! thumb.gif



I'm not sure if this is allowed, but here is a link to my motherboard: http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/P8P67M

I would recommend the evga p67 sli micro. Evga makes great boards and has good reputation. Possibly post the rest of your specs so I know exactly what cpu and gpu you have.

You can either stick with P67 or go for a Z68 or Z77.

What country are you from?

What's your budget?

Maybe fill out the rig builder so we can see what components you have.

I am trying to find the cpu and gpu, and for the cpu, are you looking for something like "LGA 1155 Socket for Intel 2nd Gen Core i7/Core i5/Core i3 Proccessors"? I am not finding anything about gpu. I don't have the computer in my possession, and the person working on it isn't responding to my communication at this very moment, so I'm left with the information booklets that came with the computer.

I am from the United States, and I believe my budget is pretty flexible. I also took a look at the rig builder, and I have no clue on how to use it. :\

I was just contacted by the man fixing my computer. He told me that CPU doesn't matter because the motherboard is the heart and soul of the computer and that all that matters is SATA hook ups and that i need at least 4

Then I would say this motherboard is the best thumb.gif Like I recommended before. It has 6 sata.

I was doing some background checking on that motherboard, and some of the reviews said something about it not working with ivy bridge processor, among some other things. I managed to find the computer I bought here: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/880502-REG/CyberpowerPC_Gamer_Xtreme_GXi410_Desktop.html

So how much are you planning to spend? Any overclock (not hard to learn)?
