Mobo

Im planning to build pc within a month.

My budget is $ 650-700

The only parts i require are - cpu, ram , graphics card and mobo.

I ve decided upon these parts

cpu- core i5 750
ram- 4 gb ddr3
graphics- gtx 460 1 gb

Can u recommend me a mobo? I dont wanna spend much on it but dont want any bottlenecks. Budget is about 80-110$.
Will all the listed parts support each other?

  1. A few things u should know about SATA/USB 3.0 tech and mobos as shown by our very own forums here
    USB 3.0, SATA 6Gb/s, Motherboards, And Overcoming Bottlenecks
    http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/usb-3.0-sata-6gb,2583.html
    Also note that LGA 1156 shall be usurped by LGA 1155 as soon as end of this year/possible Q1 next year if u intending to sink a wee bit on chip + board FYI...

  2. so should i wait till then? Fact is, my current pc is about 7 years old and i just cant live with it.
  3. ^ Well you will face issue with P55 boards having SATA 6GB/s and USB3.0 only when you will be going with more than 1 graphics card...

    Some good mobo options

    But if you dont require SATA 6GB/s or USB3.0, then

    Even this would work, but dont expect the video o/p ports to work though...
    And also if you are into overclocking, then stick with P55...

    Get a HD 5870 and a reasonably priced platform just for games ^^
  5. ^ Well that reasonably priced platform would be AMD IMO...
    Am sure even batuchka is thinking the same...

    But if you want to stick with i5, then you can easily get a better mobo within that budget if you will be buying parts from newegg...

    So if you PSU is powerful enough, then you can add 1 more GTX 460 later on in SLI if you want to...

    does this one support sli?
  7. ^ No that doesnt....
    If you want SLI, SATA 6GB/s and USB 3.0, then that ASUS mobo that I had linked in the combos is the best option...
    But you do get cheaper SLI boards but not with SATA 6GB/s and USB3.0...
  8. i dont think ill add a 2nd gpu within 3 years. So i dont need sli.
  9. This will be my configuration then-

    cpu- core i5 750
    ram- 4 gb ddr3
    graphics- gtx 460 1 gb
    GIGABYTE GA-P55-USB3

    what will the recommended power supply for this?

    And will I get all these parts under 700$?

    wont these be enough to run latest games at 1680x 1050 with maxed out settings?

    these r my current selection without the mobo.
  11. should i go for 955 be? i think ill be able to save abt $ 60
  12. Hmm if no SLI/CG for that price that Gigabyte u picked out is essentially still a 700 series mobo on SB710 and for the same price u could nab this

    that doesnt have sli, does it?
  15. will a 600 w psu be able to handle th rig?
  16. the zotac 4tx 460 has a full hdmi output

    but the gigabyte has a mini hdmi output.

    what is the difference between them? My monitor has an hdmi input.
  17. A cooler master GX 650 Watt pwer supply should do u well provided that u dont plan to sli. Its ur choice.
    The ASUS P7P55D/ Deluxe Motherboard at $149/169.00 is alos a good recommendation for ur build.
    However, ur $700.00 budget is going to be very close with either the Gigabyte or the ASUS mobo.
    In the end, it is guarnateed that you will not pass $750 tho depending on the ram manufacturer you select.

    Nope no SLI

  20. msi 870a fuzion

    i read in a book that this can run two nvidia cards together. does that mean it has sli?
    will i be able to run 2 gtx 460s on it ( in the future)?
  21. ^ 870S chipsets are for AMD...Are you planning to go with AMD CPU??
    And Yes the Fuzion will allow for SLI...

    I asked whether i should go for 955be. maybe u didnt see that post.
  23. Oh...
    Well even if you will be able to go SLI, I would not suggest that board as of now because you would have to rely on the drivers of the Fuzion chip manufacturers...So when any new card or game comes to the market, they would have to provide an update else you would have issues...

  25. ^ AFAIK there is no difference except the size...If you have DVI on both the monitor and the card, then connect using those...Go for HDMI if you want audio o/p as well...
