My System Specs

Default MSI Big Bang Xpower X58 - Good motherboard? (current X58 mobo failing)

Sup guys,

A few months back during a guys night, a non-sober friend spilt and entire glass of lovely Tom Collins on my desk which proceeded to spill into the top fans of my comp and spray everywhere. Instant shutdown saved it but my mobo and gpu took the brunt of the spray. GPU died eventually, and my mobo (Gigabyte X58A-UD3R) has now lost it's last PCI-E slot and god knows what else is gonna fry. I've spent way too much time cleaning this crap off but i keep finding new spots where it's now caked on so bad that i cannot clean it.

At $149 is this a good replacement?

I don't have the expendable cash for a X79 system as i just bought a new house so upgrading would require spinning this to my accountant (Wife) in a way that is most likely not so truthful.....
