    Ok do that mother can put and fx 8 core? Or and intel 6 core?
    Mine budget is 15k malaysia dollar
  5. I looked it up on a translator real quick, and thats about 4.5k american, if you really want to spend that much on a gaming rig, you can pretty much get the latest and the greatest with money left over
  6. well if you plan on using that board your gonna have to go with intel's haswell proc's the 4th gen cpu's.
  7. seriously you have 4000 + US to spend?! If your looking to spend that much chris is right? Use pcpartpicker to check compatability. What do you actually want to use this for?

    Do you got any better board recommend?
  9. you can easily spend 2k and get a pc that would smash through all the newest games on max everything, maybe get a killer multi screen setup or something to enhance your gaming experience

  16. any wired connection to your router, with be faster then your home internet, it should never be a source of lag
  17. For gaming, all you need to max games is:

    an i5 4670k
    z87 motherboard
    8gb RAM
    gtx770
    650w PSU (antec, XFX, Corsair, Seasonic)
    good case (Antec, Corsair, NZXT, Coolermaster, Fractal Design)

    It's not wasted if I'm enjoying it :)
  21. You aren't using it. An i5 and 8gb RAM would perform IDENTICAL in gaming.
