Asus B85M-E vs. Msi B85M-G43

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My parents need a new very cheap motherboard. It needs to be mATX and socket 1150
I found those two above in the title.

Anything better out there or something I have overlooked?

EDIT: Also found this Msi B85M-E45

Meh, they're all effectively the same. Get whatever one you prefer the look of. Can't really go wrong with any of the primary motherboard manufacturers these days, especially with budget boards that offer nearly identical features and IO. ASUS's customer service has taken a turn for the worse in recent years though. I say go for the MSI.
