hey guys im building my first rig and im still learning about everything, im trying to build a decent gaming rig for 300 pounds in total, so my question is what would be the best mother board for 50-100 depending on what on offer. id prefer to keep the budget low but if there's a substantial difference in performance i can always stretch.

would it be better money wise to get this:

or this cause its z87

in conclusion im buy parts as i go and the cheaper the better. i wish to play dayz/arma 3 on high setting, with a core i5 (later to be named) and i am going to get a nividia card (cause i am familiar/confertable with them) and finally this system is NOT going to be overclocked

For the board. Z87 Boards are good for overclocking. and since you dont plan on any overclocking. an H87 Board will be the best.

From the Boards.

From budget oriented. I would choose an Asrock H87M Board.

Because Asrock boards are feature rich compared to some other brands and their pricing is the best ever.

H87 Boards have better feautures compared to B85 Boards.

They have better reliability and better quality. (Aside from the brand)
