Hi guys could you please help me find another motherboard? im sick and tired of the one im using right now (second of the same board) i have a MSI Z68A-G43 and a i5-2500k processor. This motherboard i was told would be great to use for a gaming pc but after using it its been constant stress it makes my pc freeze constantly it says there are driver issues and it makes my speakers make a very LOUD noise when it is freezing. I cant watch video's or play games with it its so bad so i read ALOT of reviews about it and turns out the intel HD5000 onboard GPU makes the mobo screw up BIGTIME whenever it feels like it so now ive had enough and im sending it back to replace it with something but i have no idea.

Ive found 1 motherboard that is the same price and has alot of good reviews but i dont know if its good for my system or if it has a built in gpu or if it has issues like my current mobo?

The gigabyte board is definitely a step up in quality from the MSI board. It's still a low end board though. Consider getting a model higher, like the GA-z77X-UD3H

Ok thank you, i would get a better model but at this moment i cant afford to :(  if the gigabyte is good i will get that i cant find any bad reviews about it but i dont want to buy a new mobo that has a onboard gpu that WILL screw it up for me. Do you know if that happens on the new mobo's?

Not to worry, you won't have any compatibility problems with the graphics.

I don't foresee any problems based on the components you listed. The only component I have issues with the PSU. CoolerMaster make notoriously bad PSUs.
