Hi guys,
I'm upgrading my system to i5, but I'm stuck on what motherboard to get. I'm on a budget, 120 dollars AU is the limit. Thinking Intel BOXDP55WB.

Agreed. Get a board based on the Intel P55 but do not get a board made by Intel. For one thing, the BIOS settings are generally limited so if you want to overclock, you'll probably be out of luck. But even more important, Intel has eliminated legacy support on most of it's new boards. That means no IDE/PATA, no floppy, no PS/2 ports, no serial or parallel ports.

Now look at the GIGABYTE GA-P55-UD3L as an example. It's based on the same P55 chipset but it DOES support IDE/PATA, floppy, PS/2 port (one), serial port & parallel port.

Intel BOXDP55WB is really a great motherboard, currently there's a good price.
