Recently the motherboard in my comp blew. I thought about doing a new or semi-new build but am also exploring the idea of just replacing the motherboard. What I need is a suggestion for a reasonably priced motherboard for my rig. I would like to keep the cost of the board as low as I can and definitely under 200 dollars. Here is what I have and what needs to be replaced:
I can actually go above the 200 dollar price limit but as the price creeps up I have to wonder if its just better to get a new cpu/motherboard combo. It seems that at around 400 dollars it makes since to go with an i5 and mobo. However, I am far from an expert and want to hear advice from the board.
