i've upgraded my optilex 3010 with some spare parts i've had/gifted : https://www.modsrigs.com/detail.aspx?BuildID=40667

about 4k video this will depend your cpu onboard vga and not the motherboard ,i think it can handle it.
(in case you get a usb header error message on boot,you will need to make a small mod to the green usb header ,just install a jumper on 8 and 10 pin)

Best used 1155 motherboard out there?

Hi all. I'm looking for the biggest baddest cheapest used motherboard I can find. Something that would have came out of something like... a Dell Optiplex. But not necessarily that computer, just whichever one like that happened to have the best motherboard. This way, I can find it on ebay for somewhat cheap. I'm just building a new HTPC and I do want it to be the best I can get... for cheap. If that makes any sense.

Seems like some off the shelf desktop must've had a decent motherboard for Socket 1155. I've Got a Core I5 2500 that I'm going to run in it. Not the K model so it can't be overclocked. So you see why there's no point in me buying an actual good motherboard for it. My budget for the board is something like $12-$30. Just needs to be a motherboard that will work good for a 4k video HTPC, but I don't really know which ones are good and which ones should probably be avoided.
