Hello, I'd like to know what would be the cheapest motherboards that would take advantage of the full features of the following processors:
Intel Core i7 3770K
Intel Procesor Core i5-3570K
Also, I want to use the on board graphics, so no separate graphics card, I'm trying to make some price estimations .
I 'm not a heavy gamer, I want to have a fast machine, mainly for all sorts of software development, that will last the 'challenges of time'.
Also an additional RAM memory recommendation please.
From what I've found, I'd go for this:

Thanks!

What features do you want to take advantage of? If you want to use Virtu, for video transcoding, then it is necessary to include a graphics card.

No system is future proof, but the Extreme4 M has good features.

If you are looking at software development, I would go with the 3770K chip because of the hyperthreading.

You will be fine with the extreme4 M but there are cheaper boards. On the ram I would get a 2 x 8GB 1600MHz dual channel kit.
