  1. What country are you in helps when selecting these things I made the mistake of no asking once and gave advice based on US prices and such LOL! So don't mind me asking please..
  2. ASUS.
  3. Yea Asus is perfect that's what I got any ATX form factor mobo with an LGA 1155 socket will do but Asus is the preferred right now!
  4. considering that you won't oc , you don't need a z77 board. So , you can have this Asus motherboard : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131826 . It will support your cpu , ram , gpu , everything.
    And its from Asus , you can rely on it :)

    1ST one is a 77 chipset board , get that one.
  10. Just read some reviews about the 77 chip, and most of the people experince problems with the ram slot. Is it still a good idea to buy it?

  11. I would go with 77.Your not overclocking so the B75 chipset is fine also.
  12. Thanks, i will put my trust in you and buy the 77 ^^
  13. Take note often when people experience issues it user related people who don't know what their doing or have experience and simple don't want to admit a mistake and take it out on reviews. I have to agree with BLACKBIRD on the 77 mobo.
