Hello all.
I need a bit of help regarding choosing a suitable motherboard for my latest build.
In the build, I'm using 1333mhz ddr4 corsair memory, an AMD Phenom II x4 955 CPU and a HD 6850 graphics card.
Preferably looking for something from a reliable brand such as Asus or Gigabyte. My budget lies around the £80 mark. Whats the best bang for the buck?

Gigabyte would definitely be my recommendation over Asus which I have found to be RAM sensitive and less reliable than Gigabyte mobos over the past 20 years.

Gigabyte has a complete selection of AMD 990 chipset socket AM3+ mobos depending on your needs, from mild to wild that will also run your current X4 955 Phenom II CPU. The 990XA is probably the best choice and will allow full use of Bulldozer based Zambezi and other AM3+ CPUs for future upgrades.
