Cheap MOBO

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi

im currently building a PC for my grandparents, who mainly use it for basic stuff like microsoft office, youtube... but sometimes it will be used for gaming at low resolutions (hence the gtx 630) when im at their place.
im planning on using an i3 CPU (1155) at the moment and was hoping to get some suggestions on a cheap, reliable MOBO that will take the 1155 CPU and the GTX 630.

i was going to use these components so far but havent purchsed them yet so open to suggestions about a better option for one of the parts:
CPU: Intel i3-2100
GPU: Nvdia GTX 630
MOBO: ??help??
RAM: Corsair CMV4GX3M2A1333C9
PSU: Antec VP-450
HDD: Western Digital Green 500 GB

hmm, this does look like it would be a better option. would the gaming performance from an APU set up be better than an intel with seperate GPU?

this is the cheap "compatible" motherboard you can get for your i3 2100
MSI Intel H61M-P20(G3) $70.14 including GST
ASRock H61M-GS $74.74 including GST

Hope that helped redface.gif

The 7750 is a far superior card for just a little more, it also uses GDDR5 memory instead of DDR3 memory which is much faster. Besides the GT 630 is meant for HTPCs not gaming.
