Asus P5B MB
2.1 Ghz AMD Athalon Dual Core
2 x 2gb DDR2 Ram
Geforce GTX 460
500gb HD XP/Vista64 dualboot
Long story short, my system has died, isn't posting and I'm pretty sure it's the MB, so I figured it's about time to upgrade the very old CPU and MB.
My budget is around £200-220 (though the cheaper the better, ofc. I'm not made of money ^_^ ), but I'm not quite sure what to go for.
A bit of looking around has given me the idea of AMD FX-6300 6 core for the processor, mainly due to the fairly cheap £110 price tag. As for a MB to go with it, the MSI 870A-G54 drew my eye at first, but the price is kinda on the high side and, tbh, I'm not really sure what to look for when it comes to motherboards. There seems to be a whole host of AM3+ MBs of varying prices
I did initially look at the Core i5 3570k, btw as I've heard a lot of good things about it, but that's around £170 and MBs for it seem to be just a bit too far onto the expensive side. If someone can suggest a good, cheap MB to go with it that puts it inside my price range though, I'd defenitly give it serious consideration.
Thanks in advance.
