12 Micro ATX motherboards for Intel and AMD processors



When you want to assemble a basic PC system, you have no use for numerous PCI-Express slots, SATA connectors and special overclocking features. So how much do you need to spend for a good motherboard that provides all the basics without a bunch of superfluous stuff? Which board is the best choice?

Whether it's a little all-round PC for family and friends or just a basic system to use on the side, sometimes what you want is a product without a bunch of bells and whistles. The most extravagant boards cost 150 euros and more, while for 60 euros you can already find a decent board in the budget segment that works fine with Intel or AMD processors.
