Hi! My home was strike by lightning last week and one of my many things to fry out was my PC. After checking everything out, it seems that it is my motherboard that fried and the power supply still works. I was going to replace the motherboard with the same kind until I seen just a refurbished one is $130.00. Can anyone suggest a LGA 1155 motherboard that will handle the video card I have for alot less money? Even if it is a used one in ebay. I am just going to give it to my son for him to play Rust on it.
