    Hello,

    After some research on a new MB I was all set on the P8Z68-V LX but it seems Ebuyer don't sell it anymore. Can you recommend a similar board for a similar price (£70 ish)?

    Ta.

    If you want an IvyBridge CPU then you should buy a Z77 mobo. If you want a SandyBridge CPU then you will be fine with a Z68 mobo.

    Although IB is a little faster than SB, you won't really notice much difference. If money is tight I would go with SB.

    You can pick this exact Z68 MB for around £40 on eBay - I bought one last week - very nice with a 2500K.
