  1. well, that is not compatible, as the motherboard is socket 1155 and the cpu is socket 1150. if you give us a budget, we can design you a pc :P
  2. Best answer
    An i5 + 750 Ti will get you Medium/High at 1080p, and will be a very good budget setup, especially at 1680x1050 or 1024x768. What is your overall budget?
  3. That build won't work first of all. The H61M is used on the now discontinued i5-2XXX series. The i5-4XXX series is socket LGA 1150 which is H81/H87/B85/Z87/Z97. You also want at least 8GB of RAM, I know it's expensive but you won't get too far with 4GB these days. What is your budget?
  4. sorry for that mess building pc is a rocket science to me i have never build or used pc that intense :(

    i am from egypt the hardware price may change but i think i have what equal 460 to 470 $

    thanks guys for being patient with me :)

    Originally had a 4300 + mATX board in there, and those boards have just enough to run a 4300, didn't want a 6300 in it, then realized I had a few bucks leftover to add the 970 board lol completely forgot to change the CPU.

    Updated to delete the HDD and case; money went to CPU and GPU.

  12. guys you are amazing it nice to get the help of a real professional :D
  13. no problem :) and most of us are not real professionals, we just know what parts go best with each other XD
  14. i can only find ASrock 970 Pro3 is that a big difference ??
  15. eh, not too big of a difference, its still a fine mobo.
  16. The Pro3 doesn't have the best cooling for the VRMs, so I wouldn't plan on overclocking. But as a board in general it's just fine.
