Need Mobo suggestions (price range inclosed)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey folks!

It's that time of year ago, Mobo dying, new stuff coming out, and I can spend a Xmas bonus on some lovely parts thumb.gif


My price range is $0-$175.

I'd prefer staying around $150 but I can spoil myself a bit if the extra $25 grants much better results. Would like a board that can handle duel SLI and possibly tripple SLI if we can keep it quality and within the range.

Still wish to stay with my 2500k a bit longer, but plan to upgrade to a i7 next year. I plan to buy a 1000watt PSU as well. pretty confident my current PSU is dying as this is my second board in 7 months I've had issues with. So nip the issue in the bud now!

at that price range and wanting quality i dont think you can get a decent board that will do triple SLI.
some to consider
ASRock Z77 Extreme6
http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/Z77%20Extreme6/
probably the best quality Asrock board in the z77 line up in your price range

GA-Z77X-UP4 TH
http://www.gigabyte.com.au/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4280#ov
high quality board but around $180USD

MSI Z77 MPOWER
http://www.msi.com/product/mb/Z77-MPOWER.html#/?div=Detail
bit over budget but a great board none the less

GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD5H
http://www.gigabyte.com.au/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4139#sp

GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD3H
http://www.gigabyte.com.au/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4153#ov
with in budget and great quality.

for something that supports 3 way sli with a sandy bridge you could look for a used z68 in the marketplace.

I highly recommend Asrock Z77 Extreme4. I own one myself one of the best motherboard I've ever used. it's also pretty decent for overclocking.

You could also go with Extreme 6 which supports 3 way SLI/CF.

Gigabyte Z77X UD3H is also a decent motherboard.
