Need a budget Motherboard for Intel i5 2500k

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi guys!

So, I am buying the Intel i5 2500k CPU for my new ASUS ENGTX 295, but I need a new Motherboard, and I don't know what Motherboards work good with the new i5 Sandy Bridge processors...

Can you recommend me a motherboard that isn't expensive (~180$ max would be great, I'm really low on money) , and what Chipsets are compatible with the i5 2500k CPU?

I am planning on using 4GB DDR3 RAM Memory @ 1,6 GHz , and I would like to go SLI in the future...

thanks in advance...

$179. Best bang for your buck. Why I got it. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130574 This is good too. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131706 (but u cant sli with it) Go pro for $160 if you want SLI

Good budget? Gigabyte P67A-UD3P-B3. Has 12 phase vrm instead of 6 phase like regular UD3.

EDIT: missed the SLI part. Either go Gigabyte P67A-UD4-B3 or ASUS P8P67 Pro.

Thank you very much!

Both of you gave me great Mobos! But can you give me an opinion of the following:

- ASROCK P67 Extreme4

It is a lot cheaper in comparison to the ones you recommended (at least in my country), it supports DDR3 1600 MHz RAM and it has 3x PCI Express x16 (v2.0) , so it looks great to me! I will get a 3 year warranty with it.

What do you think??

That board is an amazing budget board, I'm planning on getting the Extreme6 for the build in my signature.

Thanks for the lighting reply!

I would buy the Extreme6 too, but I can't find one in Serbia...

So it is settled, the ASRock P67 Extreme4 is the winner!

Thank you for your replies, you've helped me out a lot! I gave everyone some rep..

Thanks again
