Motherboard broken - Suggest new mobo/processor

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I have a computer with this motherboard, but suddenly it just started to freeze at the Motherboard Splash Start Up Screen. I tried to reset CMOS, I have tried to change the CMOS battery and I have tried tested to see if there is something wrong with my RAM sticks (3x2GB).

Link to computer speccs

Nothing have worked... so I am now thinking on replacing my motherboard for cheap. (200$)
Problem is that I can't find any motherboards for the 1366 socket in my country, so I need to switch to a newer socket type and thus replacing the processor also. I already have Sapphire Vapor-X 4890 2GB (from 2009), is this better than the newer integrated graphic chips like Intel HD 4600? This computer is only used by my father, so I would like a cheap but good motherboard + processor combo (Intel).

Any suggestions?

ATI 4890 is still better than an integrated Intel HD series video processor. The standard Intel HD is still nowhere near discrete graphics performance yet though making some impressive gains in playing certain games. Your two choices can be 1155 or 1150 though 1150 is the successor to 1155. My suggestion is to sell the 1366 CPU and use that money towards a newer system.
