Then if you have more dosh then that.

Why? Unless he plans to overclock the difference in performance between a H, b or Z series is to minor to care. The i7 will perform identical on all of them.

Now if he is planning to overclock then I agree a more expensive motherboard is needed but to suggest a lower cost board will not properly support an i7 at stock speeds is just not correct information

Skylake is about the only platform i have seen that can actually use and take advantage of high seed RAM.

A 2400 or 2666 MHz DDR4 kit should not be all that much more.

I have found a 2666 MHz version that I can afford, but there is one which is £4 cheaper but is 16 CAS as opposed to 15, so which do I get guys?

The CAS deos not matter all that much when its 15 vs 16.

Thank you very much for the help.

Does anyone know if I should get a more expensive (more powerful) PSU that would allow me to SLI (as the one I have selected at the moment would only allow 1 GPU)?
