Need a new motherboard! Please help me to choose a one that works!!!

Hi,

After getting a new graphics card and finding out that the motherboard doesn't support it I really need help to find a new motherboard that do support it.

My current motherboard is Cleveland GL-8 by Pegatron with a size of 24,9 cm x 24,9 cm. https://h20565.www2.hp.com/portal/site/hpsc/template.PAGE/public/kb/docDisplay/?sp4ts.oid=5080737&spf_p.tpst=kbDocDisplay&spf_p.prp_kbDocDisplay=wsrp-navigationalState%3DdocId%253Demr_na-c02668523-8%257CdocLocale%253Den_US%257CcalledBy%253D&javax.portlet.begCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken&javax.portlet.endCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken (For more information about my motherboard)

The components I plan to use on the new motherboard:

- Graphics card :ASUS GeForce® GTX 760 DC Mini
- Power supplier: RM Series™ RM550 — 550 Watt 80 PLUS® Gold Certified Fully Modular PSU
- RAM: 8 GB DDR3-1333
- CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2310 2.90 Ghz
- Hard drive: 1.5TB
- CD/DVD disc reader : SuperMulti DVD Burner drive

If I didn't bring up all information you need to help me to find a new motherboard I'll be happy to give you the information you need for chosing a motherboard for me.

Many thanks in advance!

  1. Well, what is the budget you have for the Motherboard?
  2. As long its not over 350$ it should be fine.
  3. You want an Intel compatible socket 1155 micro-ATX motherboard to match the size you currently have. You also would prefer at least 1 pci-e 3.0x16 slot for the video card and depending on your RAM configuration (2 sticks or 4?), maybe 4 memory slots.
    Look at this: ASRock B75 PRO3-M LGA 1155 Intel B75 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

  4. Okey so the ASRock B75 PRO3-M LGA 1155 Intel B75 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard seems to have the exact same size as mine, great :)


    Seems like I will buy this. However, are you sure that all of my components will fit to this motherboard and make sure of that I won't get any issues using it? :)

    Thanks!

    You can't overclock with it.
  6. Well I have no intentions to overclock :)
  7. Go for Asus p8 b75-m.It supports overclocking and also has a great gaming graphics on board video chipset. also remember that asrock is a second tier of asus.it also got many other specification just google the motherboards name and you will get the link to asus site and u will find a lot of things about MB.
  8. Already bought the ASrock B75. Haven't received it yet though, but hopefully it will work.
  9. Well it didn't work... The CPU fan just spins very fast when I try to boot the PC. After a while it shuts down and starts again.

    Also when I received the motherboard it said it didn't support nvidia cards? So I guess I just blew $100. Hooray-.-
