First time post here. Man, there's SO darned much info!
Anyway, I'm building my own system. Currently, I have ordered an Intel i3 3220 processor and an EVGA GTX 350 graphics card. This is to be a machine that will play pretty much any game (not at high levels, of course). So the question is, what's a good overall mobo for about $70.00 for this?
I'd like to keep upgrading and overclocking a factor, so the H77 seems out of the question.
This MSI Z77A-G41 is $70 after mail in rebate. It's the only Z77 board on newegg under $80.
I don't know! After checking the reviews, the DOAs alone are discouraging. Even those who gave it five eggs (Newegg) had reservations - bad PCI slots, this, that and the other. I'd really like something a bit more reliable, to tell you the truth. But thanks for the suggestion.
