Looking for a new motherboard

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I recently broke my current motherboard GA H170 HD3 and am currently looking for a new motherboard.

The problem that i am currently having is that, should i be buying the same motherboard or should i buy a different one?

It would be helpful to have some recommendations on what to buy as i do not know much about them.

The max price i can do is $200 CAD, but if it is truly worth it to get one that is slightly higher priced i can consider it and make some sacrifices.

General use of the computer is gaming, and general use if this information helps.

Specs:

Cpu: i5 6600K

Gpu: Gtx 960 evga 2gb

Ram: 4x2 ddr4 2400

PSU: Corsair CX600

You could but the one you broke again but only if it had the features you wanted. If you want  newer features you could update it.
