Help on choosing i5 supported motherboard Tags: Motherboards Intel i5 Last response: January 12, 2011 8:08 PM in Motherboards Share metalmidget January 12, 2011 5:25:46 PM Hi, i'm building my first computer, but need some advice. I decided to go with the i5-760 cpu, but just recently saw that the motherboard i wanted was not supporting it i wanted a GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R, or a ASUS P6X58D, but both don't support i5 (as i saw on the manufacturers site) Some help on finding a new MoBo, plz!Or should i go for one of the MoBo above, and buy an i7 anyway? Again, i'm a newbie...

The board chipset is either the h67 (onboard video support) or p67 (no onboard video). metalmidget January 12, 2011 7:20:00 PM wouldn't it be better to get the 2400, since it has higher frequencies ( 3,1ghz) , or 2500's (3,3 ghz) Btw: i'm looking for a gaming pc And is there a motherboard you can recommend?
