New mb for my I5 3470

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have just bought a used i5 3470 and i am waiting for it to arrive next week, but i don't have a socket 1155 mb, i want one with sata 3, pci e 3.0, raid and usb 3.0, sli isn't important cause i only have one msi tf gtx 660 oc so theres alot of other single cards that gives me have more gpu power

I live in denmark but have bought something from amazon.co.uk so that is an option.


In denmark i can get something like

ASRock Z77 Pro4-M,MSI ZH77A-G43 for about 85€ a Gigabyte GA-H77-D3H - Rev. 1.0 i can also get for about 85€ but i can get a good deal from a danish website like overclock, tomshardware and TechPowerUp for free i can get 4 years warranty

ASRock H77 PRO4-M,ASUS P8H77-M LE,MSI H77MA-G43 for about 73€

What would you recommend med to look at (reviews and if i can get in denmark,amazon.co.uk)

Go z77 so you can bump all 4 cores to 3.8. You can even bump the blk to 105 to get 4.0 gigahertz. If that's not important to you than just get anything because it won't matter. That's a great CPU hopefully you got a good deal.

Havn't recived the track and trac number yet, got it for 1/3 of the price for a new one and it has only been used for a few hours.

I am thinking of getting a slightly more expensive mb because then i could buy a used gpu for about 100€ and increse my gpu power (sli) to something like a gtx 680/hd7970 (have a msi tf gtx 660 oc), even when i sell my gtx 660 i wouldn't for the money i can get for it and 100€ be able to buy a used gtx 680, i could only get a used gtx 670, that wouldn't be worth spending the money on becuase the difference is not big enough compared to my gtx 660, so sli would be a great thing to have
