Mobo recommendation


[link to this post]
 
Has to work with an i3 2120, and have 4 memory sockets.

So far I've found these:

GIGABTE GA-B75-D3V

ASRock Z77 Pro3 Intel Z77

Gigabyte GA-Z68AP-D3

but I've been out the loop for so long I have no idea if they're any good. Budget won't stretch much over £70, but spending less would be good. Any comments/reccomendations gratefully recieved.

TIA.

Well generally speaking, you can't really go wrong with Gigabyte, MSI, or ASRock/ASUS.

Personally I prefer MSI and Gigabyte, and don't like ASUS motherboards, but acknowledge they make some good stuff, and they're all top tier board makers so should have nice long warranty periods. If they don't and you can't decide (barring some known issue with one of the boards) go with the longer warranty I suppose.

Or if that free USB stick mattered to you wink that might sway it.

Pssst; O2's Broadband service has gone downhill fast in 2012, look elsewhere - I am!

Just realised I won't be moving my memory over so the 4 slots may be unnecessary, might save £20 on the board spend more on RAM....
