    Hi, yes that motherboard will be just fine and comes highly recommended, as for the rest, it's all good :)


    Thanks man :D:D:D:D Soon I'm going to start my build, but i was a little confused some people said with other treads that you should update a bios or something? Do i have to do that?
  2. Well.. that motherboard is fine if you are not overclocking. If you are overclocking then look for the non "LE" version. It should be better for overclocking purpose.

    That board (Asus M5A97 R2.0) is the non LE version, and is a very capable board for overclocking.



    and BTW do i have to buy something like a ethernet port for my motherboard or a port for my speakers for it to work???

    Yeah! Sorry, my bad! Go for that board. It is a good board. Sorry for the slight confusion there, happens very rarely.

    No, it comes with onboard Ethernet/NIC and audio. The only situation you would need to add for internet would be if you intend to use wifi, at which point you would need to get a USB wifi adapter.

    You can check for parts compatability @ pcpartpicker uk. just google that and it comes up.

    Usually the case has the cables that run from the USB header to the board. My case had the USB header cable in it for both the 3.0 and 2.0 ports.

    Asus M5A97 R2.0 ATX AM3+ Motherboard has an onboard USB 3.0 header, but the Thermaltake VL80001W2Z ATX Mid Tower Case does not have front panel USB 3.0 ports.

    Means your case doesn't have USB 3.0 ports in front, but the board does support a USB 3.0 header. If you want the USB 3.0 ports in front, you need a different case. You don't *have* to have them, it's not an issue, though if you want them, that case doesn't have them.
