Cheapest 1155 socket motherboard but from good brands?
am planning to get the new sandy bridge architecture i5 2500 3.3Ghz Quad Core CPU. (Am not interested in overclocking ref: '2500k'). I've learned that the new architecture requires a 1155 pins socket. So I am looking for some very affordable compatible motherboard but from good brands preferably ASUS, MSI. My budget for the Motherboard will be more or less about a $100 maybe a little more if there is no alternative but that's it, I've seen some other motherboards on the net but they are quite expensive.
The Motherboard need to be able to use the integrated GPU on the die even though i probably won't use it. Just in case i need to remove my discrete card or if some problem should arise with the card.
I'll be using a single PCI-E Graphics Card, am not interested in SLI/Crossfire
Thanks for your help and excuse the 'noobness' of my questions, am just starting to learn about these things.
