Comments on B75 boards (for Core i3) ?

Thinking of pairing a Core i3 2100 series (using only the Intel HD Graphics) with a B75 motherboard for a stable "office/no-gaming" type machine. Most posts here seem to go for more expensive chipsets Q77 or Z77 etc.

Gigabyte calls the B75 board "a sweet spot." At $65 for the Gigabyte GA-B75M-D3V or even the Intel BOXDB75EN is not so expensive at $90. May be.

But I'm a noob, so thanks for any advice.

    Its sufficient for office usage : )

    It will do alright.

    Gigabyte GA-B75M-D3V is just fine.
  2. Thanks for the confirm. Now just have to figure out if the Intel BOXDB75EN at $25 more might mean a more stable/less troublesome system or an unnecessary extra expenditure in a tiny budget.
