Best Budget Motherboards for Intel CPUs (2019)

Looking for a sweet rig upgrade but have a tight budget? Look no further. We’ve compiled the best motherboards for Intel processors that do not hurt your pocket. We’re targeting 1080p – 1440p gaming and considering the price range, RGB and SLI are out of the picture. The RAM support is also limited to 32GB which is more than sufficient for gaming.

Best Budget Intel Motherboards

  • Chipset: Intel H310
  • Form Factor: mATX
  • RAM: 2x DIMM DDR4 2666/2400/2133 MHz
  • Storage: 1 x M.2 Socket 3, 4 x SATA 6Gb/s

The Asus Prime H310M-E is one of the cheapest motherboards that support Intel’s Coffee Lake processors (8th/9th Gen Core). Priced at just under ₹4,500, this board can run almost all the Core i7/i5/i3/Pentium and Celeron processors, courtesy of the LGA 1151 socket. For GPU, the board provides 1x PCIe 3.0 x16 port. At this price point, there’s not much to complain and is a go-to board for PC builds under ₹30K.

  • Display: 1 x HDMI, 1 x D-Sub
  • Price: ₹6,250 (Link)

Going higher up the list, not much has changed apart from the size and build quality. This sleek-looking board is pretty much identical to the Asus PRIME H310M-E with an ATX form factor and a design. If you’re planning to pair a 9th Gen Intel processor, opt for this board.

Intel’s Z370 chipset powers high-end motherboards for the latest and greatest Coffee Lake processors. But if your build has a budget of about ₹80K, you can consider getting the MSI Z370 Pro. Again, one of the cheapest in its range and is an absolute steal considering the features it offers.
