Need help choosing a new mobo.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi there,
My mobo just bit the dust yesterday (horrible electrical burning smell & no loading into bios, psu is fine)

And since I have not been keeping up to date on motherboards I kinda need some help on choosing a new one

I would prefer it to have some sort of decent onboard audio but thats not important, I'm not bothered about SLI capabilities and it would be nice if it could Oc my lil' Q6600 a bit.

It would be prefered for the budget to be below £70

Thanks

(check sig rig for comp details)

On sk 775 the choices are quite limited, but overclockers.co.uk seem to have some pretty good deals. Here's my recommendation, a Gigabyte EP43-DS3 for 50£:

A P45 motherboard would probably be better for overclocking, but there aren't many choices since the P45 chipset has been discontinued a while ago. If you take care of the MOSFET cooling on this P43 motherboard I think you may achieve a decent OC.
