Budget Motherboards

Post by BrightSide » Sun Dec 15, 2013 1:13 pm

I need to build a few rigs for my office, and I'll be using Mid Tower cases, possible smaller if I find a good deal, and I'm looking for suggestions on what inexpensive MB I can get for them which will combine a good value and performance (won't fry after a few months of use). Thanks!
