I am working on my first pc build and I want to make sure everything is compatible. First off I am planning on getting this cpu - http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-Intel-Core-i5-Processor-i5-...

and I want to make sure it is compatible with both of these motherboards -

Second off, I was wondering if it was worth the extra $15 to get a motherboard with 3 SATA 6gb/s ports vs one with only 1 6gb/s port. I am planning on having 2 hard drives, 1 for the OS and programs, 1 for all my files. Is it worth it? Thanks for the help, any replies are appreciated!

Either board is fine.

I think it's worth it to have more SATA 3 connectors.

its compatible.
And 6gb vs 3gb?
Doesnt matter; Triditional drives wouldnt even saturate the 3gbs port. And 1 ssd is usually enough

Np.
But if ur doing a new build, i suggests get a haswell cpu.
As the board supports like 8 6gbs ports.
U can also upgrade to braodwell when it comes out
