The motherboard is Gigabyte H87M-HD3 LGA 1150 and the cpu is Intel core i5-4670 LGA 1150. the cpu is a square with lenght and wideness of about 3.6cm approximately i measured.the mobo is about 24cm in lenght and about 17.2 in wideness,.... i still think it is big enough it just feels so small towards our other older amd pc.... AND another big thing! my friends motherboard is the Gigabyte GA-B75M-D3H Motherboard - Socket 1155 costing here 90$ and my motherboard Gigabyte H87M-HD3 LGA 1150 cost's 130$ here... and mine only has 1 pci slot(long graphics card slot) and his has 2 also my mobo has 2 ram slots and his has 4 so why is my mobo so expensive and it doesint even beat his cheap bored or is there somethig i am missing??? please help people!!!!whats the difference between our mobos?

  1. Well, I'm not going to look at the specs of your new MOBO and your friends MOBO, but there should be a reason it's more expensive. Another reason would be you bought it from a very expensive retailer :D
    And if your mobo and cpu are LGA 1150 and it fits in, there shouldn't be anything to worry about.
