things don't sell for what they're worth, they sell for what people are wiling to pay.

people with an 1150 system that have a faulty motherboard are willing to pay more than a 1150 motherboard is worth if it means they don't need to ditch their entire platform.

Nobody can tell you what particular board to buy because the good deals go fast. If you want a good deal you'll need to put in the work yourself.

Assuming you're using eBay, ignore the "best match" and sponsored listings. You should be sorting Buy it Now listings by price+shipping lowest first, enter your zip code.
You can filter out most of the Dells etc by brand filter, but a lot will stay in under "not specified". If you filter out "not specified" chances are you'll miss out on the good deals.
Also try sorting auctions and best offers by time ending soonest. Then if something ending in a few hours or less looks good (check seller's feedback) either snipe an auction or make an offer, one at a time, don't tie your money up too long.
A decent budget board should be around $40-50ish, total. Maybe $30 if you dealhunt extra thoroughly.

Well I'm not doing it wrong then. Yeah $50 is 5x what the Dell boards are. The reason I bought a dell board, was that's what I've always done. Not bought them, but repurposed old junk oem machines. For me, or other people. And sometimes I'd gut a few computers just to make one half decent machine, and I'd always use oem boards. For my main rig, of course I'd always buy the good stuff and overclock it. But for the computer in my garage for looking stuff up when working on cars, oh yeah that old junk dell motherboard and core2quad are doing great. Installed in a compaq case with other odds and ends.

And I did the same for 2 HTPC's. One for my living room, one for the bedroom. And for various friends and family. I just haven't had the trouble described here, out of those oem motherboards. Until someone sent me the wrong one anyway. This is just my experience, I figured I'd tell you why I do this.

That works if you have the exact machine it came from.
Problems arise when trying to match components across generations because the form factors, pinouts, etc change.

Well how about this? Just skip buying the board and get the whole computer.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Dell-Optipl...dWuGS#viTabs_0

I won't be doing this now, it's just a thought for next time. Looks like it's got all the makings of a good 8 year htpc or garage pc. Except for the ability to plug in a graphics card. Or does it? Maybe that ribbon cable could be rigged up somehow. Their technical specs on the dell site are laughable, they don't even say if it has a PCIe slot at all. I'm guessing it doesn't. But I'm into small form factor right now. Or maybe if it were only going to be used on a 1080p display.

That just doesn't seem right to me. 8 year old motherboards seem like they should be double the price of the cheap oem boards. Hell maybe even tripple. But they're not, they're 5x or 10x the price. So I'm open to the possibility that I'm doing it wrong, and maybe I'm blind and I just can't find a somewhat inexpensive board that is socket 1155, that is worth having.
