  1. I use a biostar TH55B HD (about $90 at newegg). It has 4 ram slots, hdmi port, dual video ports, built in memtest in the bios, energy monitor program, and easy to use overclocking setttings. It doesn't have usb 3.0 or sata 6.0, but I don't miss them. Only negative is that the hardware monitor program doesn't work with windows 7. Biostar email tech support has answered most of my questions within one day.
  2. They dont sell that model where i live... Any other?

    What do you plan on using your pc for?
  4. What brands do they sell where you live or do you have a site we can review from?
  5. Almost all brands, but that model is not sold...

    I would be using the computers for everything, from games to net and applications.

    I decided to buy GA-H55M-S2H

    I think you should move up one board to the Gigabyte H55M-UD2H it gives you more options and expandability.
    I paid $85 Canadian for mine.
  7. H55 is not a good choice for an i5 750. The H55 chipset is for the onboard graphics controller found on all i5 chips EXCEPT the i5 750. A much better choice is a P55 board.
    Gigabyte and Asus are hard to beat with Gigabyte being my personal favorite. Asus is just as good though.

    There are several versions of this board. Higher price ones have more features but this is a great entry level board and should overclock quite well. It has SATA 3 and USB 3 for futureproofing.

    This version has 2 x PCI Express slots for running 2 graphics cards.

    The Asus P7P55 series are just as good.

    I agree 100% the P7P55E-PRO would be my first choice
    I'm under the impression this guy is on a tight budget.
    Even a GA-P55M-UD4 can be picked up cheap and do more justice to his cpu.
  9. Hmm i see. Thanks.
