Cheap Replacement Motherboard for LGA 1155

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey guys. I recently bent some pins on my Biostar TZ75B motherboard pretty badly while installing a CM Hyper 212+. My computer would not post afterwards so I would like to get a cheap replacement motherboard under $100.

1) Asrock Z75 Pro3 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157304 $85

2) MSI Z77A G41 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130653 $80 AR

3) MSI Z77A G43 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130646 $95 AR

4) Asrock Z77 Pro3 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157297 $85 AR

5) Asrock Z77 Pro4 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157296 $100

-Which of these (or anything else) would you recommend?

On a side note, would I be able to transfer or keep the same oem Windows 7 license if I use the same chipset (Z75) or similar chipset (Z77) motherboard? Or would I need to get the exact same Biostar TZ75B that I had before? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813138356

Thanks.

Thanks.

I'd go with Z77 Pro 4, and I hope you don't mean you actually paid for windows?

Thanks for the feedback. If I wanted SLI/CF in the future would any of these be good?

I personally wouldn't sli or overclock on a board around this price range. That's just me, is it possible and safe? As far as I know yes. I'm not 100% sure, so someone elses opinion here would be great, as for the the windows 8.. just go to a certain site, open a certain program, put it on a drive, and you're good to go.

i wouldn't either but if the OP is still going to use the i5-3350P CPU in his sig, then OP any of the mentioned boards will be fine.. Just find one that meets your needs. smile.gif

If you plan to upgrade your CPU to a K chip, this is nice board
GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD3H , it is over your budget but will set you up if you decide to get a K chip in the future and overclock it.

To me it only makes sense to future proof, but thanks for finding that other board for him, I'm not too crazy familiar with motherboard brands and pricing and optimial .. well you get where i'm going. thumb.gif

Thanks for all the feedback guys. I definitely go for a motherboard more future proof and premium. With this build I kind of rushed it and didn't get the quality that I liked. It was littered with naggy problems (heat, noise, performance) which I tried to fix myself and eventually led to its partial demise. The next time I build a rig I will pay the premium. biggrin.gif

Your welcome, just remember when you say "premium" you dont always need a $200+ board for example. just a decent around $150 average board will meet most requirements but always best to check first. thumb.gif
