Hello,
I have a PC I built a few years ago that I'm hoping to get working again.

CPU: 3770K
MB: ASUS P8Z77-V PRO
RAM: 16GB VENGEANCE
GPU: MSI 660TI POWER EDITION

The board is dead unfortunately and I'm looking for a replacement as cheap as possible. I had the chip overclocked slightly but not by much and it's not a huge priority. I haven't used the system in a few years and would like to get it up and going again. What do you guys think should I look for a refurbished/used same model MB or is there a cheap alternative that would be sufficient?

I was looking on eBay and there are p8z77-v boards on eBay for about 120 euro. Should I go with this? Is it a bad idea to buy a second hand board like this?

Advice appreciated
Thanks
Paddy
 
You don't really have a choice other than paying what they ask for.

You can get any board that is 3rd gen intel and supports the 3770k and it should just be a quick swap.
Not like you can get new motherboards for that gen.

Sadly, motherboards are usually the first to go in old builds such as this.
