Best Motherboard under £50?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm thinking of upgrading my motherboard. I need to be able to use my current components. My current CPU is AMD Phenom II X4 830(AM3). I also have a SATA III SSD, but it's being bottle necked by my motherboard which is only SATA II.

I don't have tons of cash to throw at my rig, so I need to budget. I need as much bang for the buck as I can get. I have a few in mind, but I wanted to see what other people recommend.

What motherboard would you guys/gals recommend for under £50($79), that has SATA III and AM3+.

You can see my current setup below:

Hi,
I see you joined this month so Welcome to OCN.

As for your mobo question, I recommend this one: http://www.amazon.co.uk/ASRock-970DE3-U3S3-Motherboard-Socket/dp/B007NOWDEM/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1360378393&sr=8-1-fkmr0

It is slightly over your budget by like 3 pounds but it will get the job done for you. ASRock is not a bad manufacturer.
