I made a huge mistake when choosing parts for my 1st build...I cheaped out on the MOBO- Elitegroup ECS P55H-CM

I have been having issues with the onboard audio (Realtek)
and the fact that it is a micro ATX board and has no room for expanding (only 1 slot for GPU and only 1 pci slot)


My question is which MOBO has the best audio? (...that isn't Realtek)

I will make the purchase around February 2012 and i will likey go with an i5 2500k cpu unless some new 'must have' tech comes out by then.


thanks

The Realtek are fine, if you developed a problem over time then my best guess is either you have a corruption, bad driver, or some other peripheral interference. IMO open the Device Manager and Uninstall everything Audio and restart, next make certain you have the latest Realtek drivers. http://www.realtek.com.tw/products/productsView.aspx?La...

Also, you could add a PCIe x1 Sound Card or PCI Sound Card or a USB Sound Device.

By Q4 '11 ~ Q1 '12 you'll have the LGA 1356, LGA 2011 Intel Panther Point or AMD Bulldozer. Meaning the P67 or Z68 will be old news.
