Im not looking for a motherboard with out any special features, I'm not looking to overclock, and I'd like a p55 motherboard that is reliable. Ill put an Nvidia card in it, and I might upgrade to an ATI down the road. I dont have experience in the area, and theres a lot of motherboards to choose from. Im just looking for a p55 motherboard that wont break on me. Around the 150 dollars or less range, with 1-2 PCI 2.0 slots. I dont need more than that. Id like on board audio too, dont know if im going to put a sound card in yet. Thanks, theres a lot to choose from.
I have one of the larger coolers (CM Hyper 212+) on my GA-P55M-UD2. Didn't notice any durability issues, looks solid, no bending of the board if thats what you mean. Seems perfectly stable screwed into the case with the board vertical and the cooler horizontal.
