Help with choosing the right motherboard

by kefan77 / March 21, 2011 4:40 AM PDT

hi, just a quick question about LGA775 socket motherboard.

I need to buy a new one, as the old one (P5E3) is having issues, but don't want to change the socket, as my CPU is Q9650 and is sufficient.

So the only requirements are LGA socket 775, DDR3 support in 4 slots, price around 80 EUR/ 70 GBP and brand 99% asus, but would consider Gigabyte too.

so far I found this: ASUS P5P43TD/USB3 (90-MIBA25-G0EAY0GZ)

http://www.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=os2nODmMKgOFPCBt

it retails for 77 EUR new.

This is my choice at the moment, so wanted to ask if there's anything better out there that you'd recommend instead.

thanks

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
