Hi everyone,

I'm looking at upgrading my motherboard (FM2A55M-VG3+)

I'm looking at getting a motherboard that can use two or even three monitors.

Don't want to spend too much money though. i have a budget of up to £200



Thankyou.

So you want to get just a new motherboard with your current CPU or does a CPU have to fall into that budget too?

That only narrows it down to a few dozen different CPUs, so it doesn't really say much. Any chance you could take a look at the CPU itself? The part number should be on written on the lid.

Any of boards listed http://www.asrock.com/mb/index.asp?s=FM2%2b" rel="nofollow - here should work with your CPU if it works on the board you listed in your first post. Even the most expensive ones should come in well under £200. I would go for the Fatal1ty or one of the extreme series right at the top of the page given the better VRM/power solutions on them. A quick look on amazon and the Fatal1ty board should be around £100.

No No NO

Right click on Start in the lower left, and choose System. There it will state what Processor you have.
