Intel Mobo suggestions

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

This is what I have put together so far, I am looking a decent gaming Mobo for cheap, around 100-110 CAD, and if possible comes with the bells and whistles. Also can you add a few mobos because I wont be ordering online, and my local computer stores might not have one of them in stock.

Also I will take any general advice about my components non related to Intel if you have any.

Before we get into the motherboard, two things should be noted. The memory you chose is a rip off, and the PSU is not very good.

Go with these choices instead:


G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB DDR3 2400


G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB DDR3 2133


XFX Pro 550W 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular


SeaSonic G Series 550W 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular

Unless you are going SLI or Crossfire you don't need more than 550W.

Onto the motherboard, for 110 CAD these are probably your best options:

ASRock Z87 PRO3



Realistically, you want to stretch that motherboard budget to about $130 then you can get these instead:



ASRock Z87 PRO4

But realize by not ordering online, you are going to miss out on rebates and end up spending a lot more. I doubt Canada has places like Microcenter.

Yeah, then ram isn't actually the ram I am going with, they didn't have the ram I was going to choose on PC part picker so I used a filler for prices, thanks though.

Will check those parts out, thanks. Don't have a credit card so I cant order online frown.gif
