I am trying to upgrade a home build that has tanked. I have little money to spend to upgrade, a G860 is the max right now, I can get it for $83 now, will that meet my needs as described ?.(next will be an IB cpu when possible.). I can afford up to $115 for the MB ( I have other components plus OS, PSU is 550W). My question is, which MB is good for me at that price pt. ? I do not require more than 4-6 SATA ports nor more than 6-8 USB. Firewire, etc. are useless to me. I have G.Skill 8gb 10666 mem. + MS 64 bit OS. I was looking at ASRock or Biostar Z68 MBs at the previous price pt. I do not need cutting edge specs just respectable #'s, max gaming is skyrim, no heavy lifting s/w uses. All my other comp uses are basic. Suggestions? Advice for a possible cheaper solution for now to save for better upgrade later.
Like I stated before $115 for a MB. I do not require any other components the ones I have will work w/ Z68., I can afford the previously mentioned cpu. If it matters I have 2 hds and 2 dvds (sata) and 4 USB devices max.
