Have you tested for the other parts? If the only broken part is the motherboard, just find the replacement, but finding the old model is not an easy task.
My recommendation is to buy a brand new PC.

See if you can get these for the same amount of cash

Core i5-12400
MSI B760M-E DDR4 or MSI B760M-A Pro Wifi DDR4

A Pro is higher quality board.

There are LGA1151 mobos in SHopee Lazada, some are new mostly i think are refurb but got a bit of warranty. Cheaper to change mobo only if your sure its the only thing that died.

It's either you replace the Mobo, which you can find easily on Shopee, or get a new system. with that budget, you can get a decent one

Usage? If the board failed you might want to get a cheap replacement board instead of a new platform upgrade icon_idea.gif

Replace the motherboard if you wish to save money. Do it yourself. It's not a rocket science project and quite simple to do it. 8th gen processor is still good to go for a couple of more years to come.
