  1. Firstly, I apologise if this is the wrong thread in which to post this.

    I am building a computer, and already have a fx-3580 on order and am not sure on which motherboard to puchase. I have a budget of £115 for this part of the computer, 16GB DDR3 1866mhz (I think) and sata drives. I do not know much about motherboards and was wondering if anyone could give me a good reccomendation? Thanks!

    Oh, and I won't be using it for overclocking, jsut as a high performance board.

    Can I assume you mean FX 8350?

    Okay,
    working off 115 quid being about $180 , have you looked at this?
    Asrock is building great boards. Digital power is great, fantastic feature set, and you can save some money going with the 970 chipset if you are not overclocking. **** if you do decide to OC, look at boards with 6+2, or 8+2 (+2) phase power.

    Hope thats at least a jumping off point for you.

    Arg, I thought you had a budget of $115 for the MB/RAM/HDD etc...
    Yes that is a great board. Geared towards overclocking, but very good and feature loaded.
