I plan on building an i5 Haswell Micro ATX PC, with maybe a GTX 760 GPU.
What motherboards would people recommend I look at - sorry I know nothing about compatibility? I'm looking for best bang for buck and long term stability.
- I do not intend to overclock, but have read it might be better to go for an unlocked "k" CPU as they are easier to resell and also in case I change my mind later.
- Do any motherboards come with wifi or do I have purchase a separate card? I would prefer to have it built in
Is there a good link to any resource I can read to educate myself?
Thanks .If you're willing to overclock your cpu a z87 chipset boards are capable of overclocking at a stable result. the rest of the chipsets will work only at stock purpose not meant for overclocking therefore a cheaper price.
I looked on Gigabytes website to compare what the difference between their b85 and h87 boards is. I chose and compared:
a) GA-H87M-D3H (rev. 1.x)
b) GA-B85M-D3H (rev. 1.x)
But I couldn't see any difference in the headline comparison specs listed.
How do I choose? Just go by price?
I'm sorry if these are dim questions!
By the way I live in the UK (not that that expalins the dim questions!).
