Hey guys long time no see.
My Corsair psu died.
Got a refund, bought EVGA's realized mobo is dead.
And i sure hope my 290X is alive

Amazon should refund everything.
Now, since a I7 6700k is actually not that more expensive can anyone suggest a good cheap mobo for skylake's i7?
Thanks

What are you trying to do with the system? What's your budget?

Lots of good choices for $200, at least if you are only running one video card.

Plenty of great choices for one OR two GPUs for under $200... ;)

My suggestions...

MSI Z170 Gaming M5 or 7
ASRock Z170 Extreme 4 or 6
Gigabyte G1 Gaming 5 or 6
ASUS Z170 Pro Gaming (among others)...

etc... Those are around $140 to $180. Choose your poison!!

I have a personal preference toward the ASRock options, but everything that EarthDog listed is solid and fits the budget :thup:
