Last winter I built my first gaming computer, but needed to borrow some parts, because the original motherboard wouldn't work. Now that Sandy Bridge is out I'm thinking I'd like to get an Intel i5-2500 CPU (not planning on OC'ing) but I'm having difficulty figuring out a good mobo that will last me a while. I read the reviews and many have a lot of stars, but tons of DOA reviews.
With the cpu and mobo, I'm going to upgrade my memory and graphics card as well, so if you have any thoughts on those please share!
Parts I have right now, not including mobo, GPU and CPU:
Sound card: Creative Labs Sound Blaster Audigy SE
OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 1-Pack for System Builders - OEM
Keyboard & mouse: Logitech MX 5500 Revolution Black Bluetooth Cordless Desktop Standard keyboard & Mouse Kit
Monitor: ASUS VH236HL-P Black 23" 2ms(GTG) HDMI Widescreen Full HD 1080P LCD Monitor w/height & swivel adjustment
