4-Way Intel H55 Motherboard Shootout
Right now there are a number of quality options for budget-conscious users looking to build a new computer. The AMD Phenom II X2 processor series, for example, will get you a fine deal of processing power at just $110 for the 3.2GHz flagship part. Combine this with the affordable AMD 785G based motherboards selling for around $70 and you have the makings of a seriously good value platform.
However, if you are willing to part with a little more cash, then the new Intel Core i3 series might be the way to go. When compared to the dual-core Phenom II X2 555, consumers will pay about $20-$30 more for a Core i3 530 processor, while compatible Intel H55 motherboards are on average $20-$30 more than the AMD alternative as well.
There are a number of H55 motherboards available at reasonable prices, so picking one for your next build is no easy task. Our round-up comprises 4 Intel H55 based motherboards from the likes of Asrock, Asus, ECS, and Gigabyte. With a narrow price range between $90 and $105, it all comes down to features and performance.
