Hello
I need to replace a micro ATX motherboard which has developed a hardware fault. Please could you recommend a board which supports the following:
Socket LGA1155
supports intel i7-3770s cpu
DDR3 memory slots
Sata3 6GB support
This board is for my Dad's PC, he'd like a board with good performance, but he's not a high end gamer (yet)
Thanks for your advice
Robin

Not really much left out there, used market would be best.

Z77, H77, Q77, Q75, B75 chipsets would be practically guaranteed. But the previous generation should also be capable, but may need a BIOS update with a working CPU, so a bit risky. That would be P67, Q67, Z68, though those might not have your SATA 3 support.

So ebay might be your best bet for something.

Or go out and buy a 4th gen desktop and replace the whole core:

Or even a 3rd gen system.
