I bought my motherboard right around the time of the sandy bridge error that resulted in faulty sata ports. After it was clear that they weren't going to receive enough replacement boards soon enough, scan sent out the boards with the promise that they could be returned after April. Fast forward to the other day and my useless self saw the result of this error in the form of a disappearing sata DVD drive. I contacted scan explaining I had left it until now but would they still honour the replacement and they said they would but they no longer sold my motherboard so they'd refund the cost instead (Amazing customer service by the way, so pleased with the outcome). I've not kept up with technology in the slightest lately, life has been a bit hectic moving house etc so I'm a bit clueless as to what to replace it with. My budget is around £80-100, and the PC is mainly for gaming, or occasionally I'll watch videos, music, all the usual stuff. Using a Intel i5 2500K CPU and 8Gb of Kingston DDR3 RAM so obviously will need to be compatible with that. I'm not expecting you guys to do all the legwork but if someone could point me in the direction of an article that could help bring me up to speed or a recommendation it would be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance guys and gals.
