Good day...

I am in the process of building my 1st "i" range computer, unfortunately I have a really really tight budget and would like some opinions ...

I am looking at getting -:

i3 540 (will be overclocking) << Will upgrade to i5 760 @ later stage>>
4gb DDR3 1333 or faster (preferably corsair)
1x GTS 250\GTS450 or HD5770 (depending on budget)
Corsair TX650W

My problem is choosing a motherboard ... which of the following 3 would be a better choice -:

Asus P7H55-M LX ... ...
MSI H55-G43 ... ...
Gigabyte H55M-S2V ... ...

Any and all advice would be appreciated ...

Kind Regards.

I've used biostar and msi h55 boards; both were satisfactory and both had some overclocking adjustments in the bios. If the prices are similar at your vender, I would go with the msi just for the extra ram slots.
