    Motherboard replacement


    My PC needs are not high, but may need to replace my
    GA-F2A88XM-D3H (rev. 3.0) Mobo

    I have
    Kingston HyperX 16GB [4x4GB] 1600MHz Memory
    AMD A10-6800K 4.1GHz Quad Core APU + Integrated HD 8670D Graphics EVGA 02G-P4-3658-KR CPU
    GeForce GTX 650Ti Boost Superclocked Nvidia Graphics Card (2GB, GDDR5, PCI-Express 3.0, 192-Bit) GPU

    I’m not sure how to find an ATX Mobo that will fit the bill, preferably if it will take higher spec components in the future.

    Any help would be appreciated

    Time for a new computer, my friend. FM2+ socket motherboards are almost impossible to find.... new.


    Might be time for something like this...

    Here is what you need to consider before you buy a motherboard.

    That may be true, pity as don't use my pc for much, did price one up total around £500 as will re use monitor mouse etc
    Hopefully can get mine fixed, will have. Look at your suggestions if not thanks
    Guess a used 10 year old mobo from eBay is a risk anyway

    What are the reasons to replace your MB? Did it fail?

    I had a GA Z87 MB that failed. I bought a used Asus on ebay and the computer is working fine.
    @SIW2 buy used parts on the UK. He may help you.

    This board would be inexpensive to replace as its old, is there need to replace this as others have mentioned? What makes you think you need to replace it?

    Ebay is good for parts if you know what to look for, a reputable refurbisher will have a high feedback rating and will also have an outlier about the item in question which is usually just generic for all ads but it is a guarantee of sorts that you are getting what you are paying for.

    it should state that the parts are in working order. Generally all parts will be tested this usually will at least mean the Parts turn on and function as intended or if they are real deal they get the multimeter out and actually know. They will send the item in good quality parcel with anti static bag and they will also be cleaned if they are a good seller.

    https://www.ebay.com.au/sch/i.html?_...d&_dmd=2&rt=nc
    This is an example of what to look for. Not saying that you should buy from this person and not promoting either but just an example of what to look for when buying used parts.

    Ebay and also any genuine seller will warrant a refund if you are not happy with the parts or they are dead on arrival/lost shipping and for the price it will cost you to replace that part used, for cheap its a pretty good option,

    You could even upgrade path on this socket(FM2) while using your existing parts even and still do it cheaply.

    If you find you need to replace it, and don't mind buying a used motherboard... just google you current motherboard make/model, and check the ebay results.

    The motherboard and CPU that you have now are both the top of the FM2+ motherboard world.
    You have no upgrade path from there.
    You would need to change to a new series of motherboard and CPU.

    The one I linked above, is a pretty good deal for the price.
