I'm in the process of building my first gaming PC and I was almost certain about which motherboard to get, but now I'm even more confused after reading reviews and gathering more info. Since I'm essentially an amateur when it comes to PC parts, I was hoping you guys could give me your input and recommendations.
I know it's a lot guys, but I really need some help here. I want a good mobo for the price and would prefer to stay below 200 bucks if possible. I'm hoping this PC will last me for several years and will not have to upgrade any parts soon.
6 gb DDR3 (G.Skill) - 1600
Asus CuCore Radeon 5770
22'' 1920 x 1080 AOC
If you guys have any other suggestions about these parts, feel free. I've heard that I should swap the 5770 for a 5850, but I'm on a budget. Plus, if worse comes to worse, I was thinking of buying another when it came time and use CrossFire, but I don't know if that's necessary. I'm hoping the 5770 will look nice enough to avoid this.
What makes this motherboard the better option though? I see that it is 6-Core ready, and that's the next step when it comes to processors; however, would that guarantee that I won't need to upgrade my mobo for a good time? I don't want to be required to do that for at least 5 years.
With Intel is very difficult have a rig with a proof life as long as u want, maybe with AMD but usually Intel comes out with new socket when release a new CPU architecture and is pretty sure that Intel comes out with new things in the near future.
I think that the mobo can give u the 5 years that u want, but at the end ur rig will be a very old rig.
