Hi,
My mobo is broken and I need to replace it. However, it's a discontinued model (GIGABYTE GA-MA790X-UD4P AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 790X ATX AMD Motherboard). If I post my specs, could anyone help me find a suitable replacement? I don't know much about computers so excuse any ignorance on my part. Thanks very much.

You have a lot of choices with that equipment.

Any of these boards will work for your processor, but check the 'Details/Manufacturers Product Page' to be sure the board you chose supports a 125W processor. Also, if you plan on using a 2nd PCIe graphics card, be sure to pick a board that has a 2nd slot for it (preferably at x8 or x16 speed).

OK thanks. I actually managed to find a mobo very similar to my old one.
