I'm new to the whole "build your own computer" thing. For the past two days i've been researching what the best CPU and GPU for my computer would be. I've already chosen these two pieces of hardware (listed below) but now I have to now do the unfeasible task of choosing a motherboard. I have no idea where to start, i've tried learning all the lingo for it but it is too much for me. I'm hoping someone could give me some ideas for a motherboard that would suit my needs.
For my CPU, I chose the intel i7 2600k processor.
For my GPU, I chose the XFX HD 7870.
I'm mainly using this computer for video editing/multimedia/heavy gaming. Any good recommendations for a motherboard?
Also i'll be looking into over clocking in the future.
Ever since Intel’s introduction of the Z77 chipset, motherboard giant Gigabyte has made huge leaps in in improvements on their motherboards all the way from the budget end to the extreme high end and the Z77X-D3H is a perfect example of what kind of top quality products can be achieved.
With support for PCIe 3.0, SATA 3 6Gb/s, 8 channel integrated audio, Gigabyte’s fully digital power delivery system, and ultra durable 4 features, it’s got a lot going for it.
