I need new Motherboard

Heya again. This forum rocks :)

So after ~3month i finnaly decided to take my broken PC to repair shop to ask wth is wrong with it. A guy said its motherboard. I actualy made a tread about this problem before http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/forum2.php?config=tomshardwareuk.inc&cat=12&post=261667&page=1&p=1&sondage=0&owntopic=1&trash=0&trash_post=0&print=0&numreponse=0&quote_only=0&new=0&nojs=0
but havent got any solution. So im going to buy new motherboard. But i have ~90 pounds (~100 euro) since im in Germany atm, but will move to UK soon (but i want to order motherboard from UK to Germany). Could u guys give me some advice on what motherboard i should get for 90 pounds? +/- some pounds wont matter. I would preffer Asus, but if somehting as good as asus it wont matter. I dont know what is perfect for my wallet and my system, also dont know with what chipset would be better. Bought prety much all my components from http www.overclockers.co.uk (3 years ago) Heres what i have:


Intel Core 2 Duo E6600, Socket 775, 2.4 GHz
768Mb XFX 8800GTX PCI-E (x16)
HDD Segeate 300Gb sata
(2X1Gb) Corsair Value Select, DDR2 PC5300 (667) got another 2 extra, but not using since im on 32bit XP
Creative SoundBlaster X-Fi Xtream Gamer Fatal1ty Professional
Enermax Galaxy 1000W EGA1000EWL ATX2.2 Modular PSU
Dell Ultrasharp 2407WFP 24" Widescreen LCD Monitor - Midnight Grey


I was using this: Asus P5N32 SLI Premium/WiFi-AP, that i need to change now

Had also Asus P5N32-SLI that something hapened to her after few weeks (pc wont turn on and no SB_PWR wouldnt lit)
P.S. im not into overclocking anything
Sorry for a broken english

  1. i just looked at it, and not sure about my vid card, do u think it can fit? it looks prety thin space for gf8800gtx, cos this card is damn fat. that sink looks prety close to pci-e x16 slot
  2. Go to this site.

    They have all the best & worst MB's rated for you. I am a huge fan of ASUS myself. I have NEVER had a bad experience with any of the ASUS MB's I have owned (so far :) )

    Or this

    http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=MB-278-AS&groupid=701&catid=5&subcat=1155

    Anyone could give me final thoughts on which would actualy be better?
    And im still not sure if my gf8800gtx could fin in that slot in gygabyte board. that heat sink near pci-e slot confuses me :??:
  4. Well you said 90 pounds that's why i didn't recommended the ASUS model :P but between those,both are good,i would choose the ASUS model because it has a better cooling
  5. thank you for help !
  6. No problem :) hope You'll enjoy it :)
  7. I have already checked your old thread and guess what, If i was you I would have stayed away from Asus, because there was no reason for the board to fail like that!
    My dual core Asus MB also Died after a series of fails and hang-ups, and it was only 2 yrs old.
  8. Well it doesn't mean that if you buy something and it turns out to be bad then the manufacture isn't good.
    For me i had Gigabyte 965 DS4 and it served me well after that i used ASUS P5K-E WIFI and now i have ASUS MAXIMUS Formula and all of these worked for me without a problem.

    Well u know i really like Asus, i actualy dont even blame this board for leting me down, because:

    For 3 years i had no problem with her
    This summer was insanely hot (~35c) and my PC was on for about 17-18 hours every day. Now imagine 35c outside, inside room would be even more crazy. I dint had any air conditionair or vent, i literaly was sweating my ass off :??: I dont know what conditions this board can stand, but to me it looked liked she did everything she could. But again, maybe im wrong
  10. I used to run 3 MSI boards in a very extreme conditions (hot summer 35+ over 88% humidity no AC, constant power outage, unstable voltage, Generic PSU, very bad treatment and the pcs were on as long as the power is on, and the result! 100% stability and 6 yrs of reliability. and they still alive to date. On the other hand my ill fated Asus MB was spoiled more than daddy's little girl, but it didn't live up to the hype!
    pls do not take my word for either, it is just a personal experience!
  11. I know :) everyone got different experiences :)
