    I really wouldn't spend too much on a board for an i3 unless you plan on an i5 750 or i7 8xx upgrade sometime in the future.
    If you do the ASUS P7P55D-E Pro is a very good mobo.
  2. Thanks for the reply, it is very helpfull. as for upgrading to the i5 750 i will in the future it's just i'm on a tight budget at the moment.
  3. Stick with a P55 board when selecting.MSI is a quality maker about the same level as Asus and Gigabyte.
    Also a 3yr warranty is important when choosing a mobo.
    The i3 530 is a great cpu i have one.
