need bit of help

Hi i've had a few problems with a msi z77 G43. I've had one making a buzz noise and msi said it was dying so i had it replaced and the replaced one gave me a lot of problems, it would not even let me install windows 7 in the end so i had to sent it back and got a refund so i got £72.98 in my paypal account right now to get a new motherboard.

So i need a bit of help i like the msi boards cool and love the all black look. Im looking still at the msi but don't want to trust getting a bad board again and having to wait even longer and use my wifes motherboard still.

Im looking at the Asus P8B75-V Intel B75 Socket 1155 but not much info if any good for my gaming i do.

A mate rob the scot showed it me but now i got my refund im not sure what to do lol so hope one can help.

Specs

intel i5 2500
Corsair XMS3 8GB <-- upgrade later this year
600w psu (novatech)
asus 7770 1gb dc

I need some help on a good motherboard that is like the z77 G43 so hope one can help.


ps: sorry if my post is all over the place its just how i am with posting.

Hi thank you for the reply

I have the non K i5 2500 i don't do real hardcore gaming just not light gaming ever.
I know i should have went for the K one but I've not even passed 45% of cpu usage yet on my gaming.

Dude I would get the Asus P8B75-V Intel B75 since you don't have a k series cpu, unless you plan to get a K series cpu later down the the line than ye go for a z77 or something similar that allows you to over clock

I think you should get a Z77 board, cause you never know when you decide to go all "K". I would go for this GIGABYTE-GA-Z77-DS3H or GIGABYTE-GA-Z77-D3H for about that price.

Yeah i was thinking that as well as i like to just update small things than big things on a pc.

Would there be chance of a all black board. im looking but looks like i need to get more money on my account.

Im glad im even getting help not many sites do that just they love post spamming.

Ok thinking the P8Z77-V LX but seems some people having few problems and some say it's not worth the money.
