I'm in the process of trying to build a mining rig. I had everything lined up and then bam, someone bought the motherboard I wanted before I could. This raised a tonne of problems as the next cheapest motherboard I could find while only about £10 more, meant I needed a CPU which cost £30 more and RAM that cost a few £ more. This made the venture seem unprofitable for me.

Can anyone suggest some good cheap motherboards which can be bought in the UK and are good for mining?

Thanks!

well if you have cpu/ram that worked with your mobo in mind but doesnt work with the other one, then it's kind of important to tell us what cpu and ram you're using, or the mobo you wanted. otherwise nobody knows what you want
