Any 1150 socket mobo with 2133mhz ram support for £60-£80?

I can't seem to find and motherboards under £200.... is this wishful thinking? are there no mobos that support fast ram at this price? Should I just get slower ram?

    Hi,
    This motherboard supports RAM speeds more than 2133Mhz

    But why do you need a RAM with speeds of 2133?

    It gives better performance doesn't it? I'm pairing it up with an i5 4670k and a gtx 780 with an ssd so i don't want any bottlenecks. Great motherboard suggestion, I will almost certainly get it :) thanks.

    Yes it gives better performance on synthetic benchmarks only, the human eye and brain will not spot those tiny differences between RAM speeds of 1600Mhz and 2133Mhz.
    I would say get 1600Mhz with CL9 or since you have Haswell i5, get nothing more than 1866Mhz, Haswells do like 1866Mhz

    Performance bottleneck comes from GPU/CPU not from mobo. For info please. This mobo is a good choice as well.

    i meant RAM speeds not mobo, I'm getting 2133mhz ram so needed a mobo to support. he asked why i need 2133mhz ram.

    This is indeed a great motherboard. Remember OP that 2133MHz isn't really needed... 1866MHz will do fine if you are gaming.

    same price anyway, I may well just get 1866mhz but it's always good to keep upgrading/overclocking in mind :)
