Are you looking for a budget motherboard that fit into your DIY gaming rig?

The Asus P8B75-M LX is a budget motherboard based on the Intel B75 chipset, supporting Ivy Bridge and Sandy Bridge processors and oriented toward business/gamer/light users. Due to Micro ATX form factor, the P8B75-M LX is convenient for use in smaller desktop PCs, but as a downside the motherboard has only two memory slots, as well as only one PCI-E 3.0 x16, two PCI-E x1, and one PCI slot. Storage support-wise, there is a decent number of ports – five SATA 3G and one SATA 6G for you SSD [OS], while for connectivity to external devices there are a total of eight USB 2.0 and four USB 3.0 connectors. Video output is provided via VGA and DVI ports. Audio is provided via VIA High Definition Audio, whereas Gigabit LAN connection is supported by Realtek Gigabit Ethernet.
