An appropriate motherboard is a critical foundation for a custom PC, even when you're looking to save some cash. High-quality components are the key to a long, reliable life cycle for new builds. In the B660 chipset range, MSI comes out on top with its MAG B660 Tomahawk Wi-Fi DDR4 board, offering the best features for a fair price. Even better if you don't need Wi-Fi since the cheapest board on our list is an Ethernet-only variant of the fantastic Gigabyte DS3H board.

For those aiming for a fully-fledged build, the TUF Gaming B660M-Plus Wi-Fi D4 is an mATX board from ASUS with plenty of options for storage expansion and modern GPU support via its PCIe 5.0 lane. ASRock even accommodates RGB-loving gamers with its B660M PRO RS, touting a reasonable 8-stage power phase for overclocking. Compared to some of the best motherboards (opens in new tab) available, any of these budget B660 boards will serve you well if you don't mind sticking with previous-generation DDR4 memory (opens in new tab).
