    Motherboard

    So... I plan to make some upgrades to my prebuilt PC and I'm not sure what new motherboard I should get to accompany my upgrades as looking for the 'best' is harder than looking for the best GFX card for example imo

    I'm just wondering what mobo I should get, if at all as the case I have will have USB 3.0 and I will install new fans and I have no spare chassis fan 'slots' so rather than spending money on a £20 fan controller - I thought of the option of investing in a new mobo, maybe not - I'm undecided at the moment.

    So I was thinking of possibly ditching the current fan controller (nzxt sentry 2) and the fans and get a new motherboard with enough PWM fan slots....

    CPU: 1155 (i5 2400)
    Price range: £40-80
    Size: mATX or ATX
    USB: 3.0 and 2.0
    SATA Ports: A decent amount would be preferred but I would not need a lot.
    NOTE: CPU OC'ing will not be happening.

    What other criteria is there? ^^

    I'm not looking the the highest of range so fancy shit is not needed imo

    G43 or G43M by MSI, trust me, it's a good board.

    From personal experience, I know that ASUS makes a quality lineup of boards. But like BigScotiaBhoy said, the newer MSI boards are also great. The new boards usually have usb 3.0 standard and a plethora of other goodies depending on manufacturer. You can find in-depth reviews of mobos online and find one with features that you will use. Just because a board has everything doesn't mean it's a quality one.
