I'm upgrading my PC and I'm getting a AMD Athlon X4 760k CPU with a MSI HD 7770 1GB GDDR5 Ram, so what's the best £50 motherboard?

Thanks.

How much you spending on all 3? I'd buy a 750k instead of 760k as you could spend price difference towards something like a cooler. I'll post a mobo in a second.
I cant find the 750k on the same website I'm getting the 760k, I'm paying £58 for the 760k, but which motherboard would you say was best for my £50 budget?

Sorry updated my post OP, realised there's basically no difference on 750k/760k.

Could you afford this?

Very solid setup for Medium level gaming(if that's what you're looking for)

If not, you could go for something like this.

the MSI board has VRM heatsinks on the A88 one which ensures that the Voltage Regulation Modules don't overheat if you overclock.

you can get another hd 7770 graphics card that means you will have 2 hd 7770's crossfire.

Crossfire = SLI graphics cards which improves performance on higher res monitors and some games.
