Hello I'm upgrading my CPU and MoBo. I'm going to upgrade CPU to a i5 3570k. I'm tring to get a good Mobo at good price. I recently found a barebones pc on ebay for under $300. It comes with a case , dvd rw drive, i5 3570k, and a MSI Z77A-G41 Mobo. Is that a good MoBo and price or anyone seen any better deals? Thank You!

Considering the cpu costs 215 bucks alone, this looks like a good deal. I have never used MSI motherboards and that board is pretty cheap. I don't expect it to overclock very well. If you are looking for a good board, I suggest the ASRock Extreme4.

I have the Z68A G43. It's total trash. Don't ever get a low end MSI board. The board takes so long to POST and overclocking is near nonexistant.

Im upgrading from a HP uATX MoBo so this should be a good upgrade right? Then I can later upgrade MoBo. It also come in a Diablotek Evo case is that better thanmy HAF 912?

Don't ever get anything diablotek. They're all guaranteed to be super low quality. Zalman and rosewill cases are pretty good for the price. Really any motherboard will with unless you are doing some overclocking.

Gigabyte Z77-D3H is also good, but I like the Z77-UD3H better, mostly because it looks good compared to the D3H. The UD3H is the one in black.. You can also get the UP4TH, if you really need the functions it provides. D3H or UD3H with 8Gb RAM for around $130 or under $150 is a great deal, depending on the free RAM anyways, that would be if I were you.

I can suggest the Extreme4 for great overclocking or the PRO4 abit cheaper can overclock but not too stable like the extreme4

Z77 Extreme4 = 115
Z77 PRO4 = 109
