Hey guys. Well, my i3 mobo is apparently dead. It won't POST, BEEP or anything like that.

I was originally going get an AMD CPU and mobo, but figured it would be cheaper to just replace the Intel mobo.

So I'm looking for another Sandy Bridge mobo to replace the dead motherboard.

Or if you guys know any Ivy Bridge motherboards, that support Sandy Bridge chips; that would also be good.

I'm willing to spend about $60-$80 on a mobo .

I would prefer an Ivy Bridge, with Sandy Bridge support. That way I can upgrade to an Ivy Bridge CPU later; without having to reinstall Windows 7 and all that.

Best solution

It is a great motherboard that I personally own. has everything you could want except for sli support but not many people need that.

And it supports both Ivy Bridge and Sandy right?
