Hi everyone i have sent my mobo which i bought and arrived DOA back, I opted for a refund to purchase a new one. I would like some help choosing a new one i found these three

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submi...|13-131-716^13-131-716-TS%2C13-131-727^13-131-727-TS%2C13-130-629^13-130-629-TS

and was wondering which is the best bang for the buck i have i3 2120 processor and a gtx 460 graphics card so they need to accomadate them. My price range is going to be 85 and my preferred site to order them on is newegg but i will order from another one if recommended.

I am planning to get the asus but i don't know if i should get one that has usb 3.0 on it or not. Could someone help me choose a motherboard the one brand that i will not buy is a asrock the brand that arrived doa for me im never giving that company my money again. My budget is still 85 dollars i could use help seeing as either today or tommorow whenever newegg gives me my refund i am buying one.

From these, I would opt for the ASUS P8H61-M (REV 3.0) Micro ATX Intel Motherboard.

But, are u sure u want to go with microATX with "hot" GPU?

It will be hot all around.

Make sure u have case with good cooling solution.

Okay it looks like the asus is a highly recommended board so unless someone else posts a different board than the ones i have listed i will buy the asus. All i have to do is wait for newegg to refund me.

Okay i should have added when i began this post but i forgot. I have found another mobo by gigabyte but don't know how well they make mobos so i was curious would this be a good one or the asus still the best.

wow that is so ironic do you want to know something that is the motherboard that i sent back and why i am never dealing with asrock again. It worked except for maybe three parts and they were essential parts wow i thought i would never see that again.

Yep i am just going to go ahead and when newegg approves the refund purchase the asus it looks like the best bang for the buck. I dont have anything that uses a usb 3.0 interface so i dont need that function right now i can always upgrade everything later.
