Budget oc'ing board for i5 760?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Making a build for my sister, and I need a board to go with an i5 760.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-437-_-Product

I was looking at this but would like suggestions if anything is better. I don't need an amazing overclock, something like 3.5 GHz would be fine. Don't need crossfire/sli, and would like to keep it under $120ish. Any help appreciated.

H55-GD65, if you don't mind having an H55 chipset.

That's a nice looking one. Better reviews than the gigabyte board too. Thanks. Any other suggestions welcome.

If you don't mind a rebate it's a pretty solid board for the $. Not too many P55 boards will give you trouble getting to 3.5GHz.
