Motherboard Suggestions for Value Build

Hello! I am somewhat of an amateur to the computer building community but I've been doing a lot of reading lately to learn how to make myself a fairly functional build. I bought all the parts for my new computer but I damaged the motherboard and newegg has de-activated it, so I am in search of a new one and would greatly appreciate some suggestions for a new motherboard that would complement my other parts. My idea was for the computer to be able to handle my everyday college needs, Microsoft Office, browsing, etc and also to handle some light gaming, mostly MMOs. I wasn't looking for maxed out settings, just good ones. I was really hoping to overclock it a lot. I'd prefer to spend $60-$80 for the motherboard but can exceed it if needed. I'd like to purchase it within the next few days.

The old motherboard: Gigabyte GA-EP43-DS3LR LGA 775 Intel P43

  1. The GA-EP45-UD3LR could be a replacement for the one that you had, but if you can afford it, the GA-EP45-UD3R would be a better motherboard if you want to overclock. No $60 motherboard is suitable for a lot of overclocking.
