    Icon4 Motherboard Upgrade Help

    So im thinking of buying a new mobo but im on a really tight budget ($65). I have currently Gigabyte M68MT-S2. I'm also going to buy a 120gb SSD Sata 3. Was looking at some MSI mobos on newegg around my budget but don't know which would be best for an AMD FX-8350 cpu or any other mobo brand. Just need something better than what I'm running with at the moment. Hopefully you guys could help out.

    Since I don't know what Form Factor you want, here's the list, sorted by Socket: http://pcpartpicker.com/parts/motherboard/#sort=a8

    I recommend using the site to part out the rest of your PC as well.

    For your price range, you will not get anything that can properly handle overclocking that CPU at above the stock voltage.

    There are not many MSI boards that are good in this range, at least when it comes to VRM protection

    When in the budget range, check with this list first before purchasing (for any CPU above 95 watts)

    Many boards in this range will have trouble with 8 core CPU's so stick to the ones with no major issues, e.g., http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128602

    Should be ATX, Full ATX, and Micro ATX.

    This is what I currently run http://pcpartpicker.com/p/pJDrRB (Excluding the SSD which I'm getting)
