I am planning buy Intel Core i7 3770K 3.5GHz LGA 1155 Processor, Can you guys help me to choose a good motherboard with good warranty.
Price i am willing to spend moderate, i am not a big gaming fan.
there is another part of the site with a set of instructions on how to ask for hardware advice. I will look for it there is a long questionnaire
here you go
I have a bit of advice you picked the top of the line cpu.
how much is your total budget? and read the link.
I find size matters. Do you want a big case a small case a medium case.
Do you game?
mostly HT or both?
I could say you want the top of the line cpu for why? you don't game much you may not want to over clock. you can get a i5 3570 for a hundred less.
as for mobos small build I love the asrock
itx from you can use a nice msata ssd in it for your boot drive
for a medium build I love the asus maximus gene v
for a large build I love the gigabyte sniper
(this mobo is tricky to setup) not for a beginner build
its is costly. Once I set it up it is rock solid
