Hello. Im in a bit of a predictement. Allow me to explain.

My PSU, a corsair hx750w, burnt after a year. Since my pc was still within the store's warranty I sent it back to have it tested and the psu replaced. After replacing the psu for a corsair ax750w the store kept testing my setup during the weekend, which was when the mobo broke. Now I was asked if I wanted a different mobo to replace my old one within the same price range and this is why I am here to ask you guys for suggestions for a mobo with the same specifications than my own or maybe one slightly better within the price range.

My setup is:

Cpu i7 860
Mobo Asus p7p55d-e pro
4gb gskill pc16000 ripjaws cl9
2 1tb hd
Corsair ax750w
Dvd rw

Don't know your options from the vender. I would list them.

If it died during their testing, then it is their fault it broke. You should push for a free replacement if they haven't already offered it.
To the question of your new motherboard. Since it is a near 3 year old system, your options aren't very big. I would never suggest a third-party company for a motherboard, so how about this one.

I would focus on a P55 board from Asus, Gigabyte or MSI they all have good reps and should be able to get you a solid replacement board.
