Best sub-£100 motherboard for i3-2120 ?

  qvision 05 Apr 13

Hello :)

I have bought an i3-2120 and want to get the motherboard next week.

I had ordered this one from ebay for £60:

They sent me an MSI Trinergy by mistake :

If the Trinergy had the right socket (1155 not 1156) and USB 3 i may have kept it, since it's anywhere from £170-£200.

I am now looking at this motherboard :

I feel happy with my choice but thought i might run it past people here just in case there's anything better/cheaper out there that i've missed.

Thank you,

Cheers Dave, that's a good board for the price.

I need more than two PCI slots so i don't look at crossfire/SLI boards.

Thanks Dave,
