What motherboard would be good for this CPU / what ram could i get with it?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So i'm trying to build a computer. The CPU i'm going to get is a Intel i7 3770 2.4ghx. (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007SZ0EHE/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER)
I honestly have no clue what motherboards are compatible with that cpu, and what would be pretty cheap.
Also, I want to purchase 8gb Ram, but I dont know what ram would be compatible with the mobo.

for reference: The gpu im getting is a Radeon 6xxx/7xxx series ( i want the mobo to be able to handle it)

It really depends on how much money you want to spend and features.

At minimum if you plan to overclock i would look at the GA-Z77-D3H it sould be under $150. If you want more than 2 pci-e full size slots and better power delivery then see if you can find a G1.Sniper 3, GA-Z77X-UP7, ASRock Z77 Extreme11, ASRock Z77 OC Formula LGA , or ASUS Maximus V EXTREME LGA 1155.

For the i7-3770, you'll need a 1155 chipset.
1155 Chipsets are: H61, H67, P67, Z68, B75, Q75, Z75, H77, Z77.

The first four will require the latest Bios to work with IB CPUs aka your 3770.

Since you don't have the K model that means you can't overclock therefore the P67, Z68, Z75 & Z77 are a waste of money for you.

The H77 offers most features the top line Z77 has except for the ability to OC.

I would recommend the GB GA-H77-DS3H for 99$.

Memory wise, any 240-pin DDR3 DIMM modules would work, recommend you go for 1.5v modules instead of 1.65v (although both would work).
This Kingston Hyper X 1600MHz CL9 seems good for 69$.

You'll also need a quality PSU for your setup. Kindly avoid anything that comes free with the case or that has MAX in its name.
