I'm looking for a motherboard to replace my old one that's been giving me problems lately (See this thread).
The PC is used for heavy gaming (All new games running max settings; GTA V, Fallout 4, etc). It's used for a fair amount of video/photo editing as well.
- AM3+ CPU socket
- Budget is around $150USD
- USB 3.0 header support
- At least 4 USB ports on the back (USB2.0 is fine)
- Built in 5.1 surround sound support (No additional sound card needed)
- WiFi, bluetooth, integrated video and PS/2 are not required.
- Needs to work with the rest of my components, obviously (See below)
CPU Cooler - Cooler Master V8 GTS
I raised my budget to 150usd, that would probably be a more logical budget for a decent board. I'm also flexible on the price, if it's more expensive than my budget, but is an overall better choice, then go ahead and suggest it. As long as it's not way out of the budget.
