Need a new mobo

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Recently my bio-star A880G+ just went down with numerous errors like ram problem, bios crashing, non-stop cmos resetting by itself. So I need someone to suggest a new mobo for me. I need a decent mobo that is not costly, less than $85. I only need 1 PCI-Express 16 2.0 slot and DDR3 1333 standard ram slots (2 minimum). The cpu i have is Phenom II x2 555 BE, and G.Skills 2GB DDR3 ram x2 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231190). My graphic card is pretty old, EVGA Geforce 8800GTS 512KB KO version. PSU OCZ 600W modular. So yeah, someone suggest me a AM3 mobo?

Have you tried update the bios. I had a mobo that did this and I update the bios again and fix the problems.

^this I'm having fun with my 880GM-UD2H as it's a good mATX mobo...pretty cheap and solid...although you'd have to get heatsinks for the mosfets if you're OCing

Ok. Mobo is dying. Go with the giga-byte the stated before then RMA the biostar when you get the other mobo. I would keep the biostar mobo after the you RMA it for a spare or just sell it.

This board is better...

Biostar TA790GXB3

It might even unlock that chip to a quad.
