I have a XFX RX 570, but it wont work with my current mobo. I have a lenovo MahoBay CIH61MI v1.1 in my PC, but it is-int BIOS compatible with my GPU. Would any of you guys know of a UEFI Micro atx Socket 1155 gaming mobo under $100. My specs are

Mobo: Lenovo MahoBay CIH61MI v1.1
CPU: Core I7 2600k
RAM: 2 sticks, 1 crucial 8gb and 1 kingston 4gb ddr3
HDD: 1 WD 500gb, 1 Samsung 250gb
PSU: Corsair CX450M

Thanks of any help

These two look okay:

Basically what I did was search for Sandy Bridge, and Z77, H77, etc. Basically avoid OEM boards from Dell, Lenovo and HP. Intel boards should be EUFI, but no guarantee.

Also no guarantee it will work any better.

Probably have to look at the used market. Anything new is going to be very overpriced.

For what it will cost, and considering that replacing the OS will likely require a new copy of Windows. Just go ahead and build a new core system.

Ryzen 3100/3300x is about the performance of that old i7. Intel i3-10100 would also do.

i3-9100F is a good bargain at $76, just add motherboard and ram, and OS.

Thanks for the advice, but I just bought the I7 and ram, and am on a short budget. I already bought Windows 10 for new mobo, hence looking for the new board which is compatable with the I7
