Socket 1150 Not Overclocking

Hi, I'd like to ask about a good Socket 1150 MB for i5-4570. I want an Asus or Gigabyte if possible since in my store there aren't any MSI MBs : (

  1. Any of the Gigabyte or Asus boards are fine, just choose based on price.

    what is you budget, other parts' specs (e.g. case), where you'd be buying from etc.
    asus z87-a, z87-plus , gigabyte ga z87x ud3h are some of the asus and gb motherboards. they're all atx motherboards, need atx mid tower case typically.
  3. what do you think about Gigabyte H87-HD3 and Asus H87-Pro (C2) ?

    I'm buying from https://www.mindfactory.de/
    I don't want an Z-series since I won't overclock my CPU

    It costs me 791 euros, but I want to make it cheaper, I'm thinking about not buying the SSD if MB is bad and I have to pay more for a good one

    Either of the motherboards you have suggested would be good.
    Power supply is OK, but the Seasonic G 550 would be a better choice.

    imho, both the asus and gigabyte motherboards look similar to me. since they're based on h87 chipset and no-frills, either one would be fine. asus' advantage is that it bundles a display port for the igpu and mentions c2 rev. which is supposed to take care of the early usb 3.0 issues from haswell pch

    Power supply is OK, but the Seasonic G 550 would be a better choice.

    80+ gold, but lower power rating.
    You really only need a 500W power supply if it is good quality.
    The Corsair CX series are OK, but better quality supplies are available and these don't have to be expensive if you pick the right power rating.
    Antec HCG 520 would be a cheaper option.
    How much extra will the Seasonic G 550 cost you over the Corsair CX 600?
  9. I'm going with Asus H87-Pro (C2) then :3
    May I ask if 1000GB Seagate Desktop HDD ST1000DM003 is good? I wanted a WD Black but they seem similar, but the WD is more expensive.
    Also instead of SSD I can buy a better GPU ?

    The Seagate drive is good.
    Dropping the SSD will allow you to choose a better graphics card.
    This will increase load times and Windows startup times without the SSD, but frame rates in game will increase with the better graphics card.

    22 euros, I can afford it if I don't buy the SSD
    btw I want a modular PSU :3
    Antec HCG 520 = 84 euros modular and 65 non-modular

    I can w8, especially comparative with my notebook it will be much faster.

    Modular power supplies aren't usually necessary.
    You only end up with a couple less cables than a standard power supply usually, and these can be tucked away in most cases.
    The Antec HCG 520 is a good quality 80+ Bronze rated supply manufactured by Seasonic. I would definitely choose this over the CX 600, even if that means not being modular.

    I'm going with the G 550 80+ Gold instead of SSD and CX600, + i have 30 euros more to spend on GPU : )
