This one seemed pretty durable

Thanks.

Major tasks: gaming, editing, rendering (only on the recorded videos for couple of montages, not a daily occurence, twice a month perhaps), music composition (ableton)

As you choose the i5-3470 you won't be overclocking, so no need to spend a lot of Money on an expensive MOBO.

This would prove to be a worthy consideration because of the low cost and the high performance.

thanks, but I heard the B75 were bad mobos or something, is that only in regards to OCing?

Yes, don't spend Money on a expensive MOBO when you got a CPU like that.

If you got any doubts, just read the review!

I'm actually using that same MOBO right now with an i5-3570 and GTX 660. It won't affect your performance in any major way as you can spot, it' minimal.

Here is a video of the gaming performance of the rig.

Yes the B75 chipset isnt designed for overclocking so if you are trying overclock that wouldnt be a board to choose. I personally would be looking at a board the H77 chipset. Maybe something like this MSI H77MA-G43 would work well for you http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

But why would the OP need a H77 MOBO? He got a CPU that can't overclock.

So how could it Work out well for him? The OP WON'T enjoy better performance by paying more?

I like the B75, no thrills, no frills, no headaches and cheap.
