I was debating if I should ask here or the new build section...
My case is the Cooler Master 430 and said in the title it is mid-size.
I was wondering if I should get a micro-motherboard to save money. I can't spend more then $120 and the least the better. I want to get an i5-3450, so either H77 or Z77. I'm planning on only running one graphics card under $200. I don't plan to ever crossfire/sli. So if I only plan to have one card should I just get a mATX since I don't need that many PCI slots? Is mATX hotter then ATX? Oh yeah and I'm going to game on this mostly. Lastly, I want PCI Express 3.0, but all H77/Z77 have it so that is kind of redundant right?
I'm only buying from Canada Computers.
I think the paragraph is a little messy so:
Should I get mATX to save money
$120> for it
Want to get i5-3450
Going to only run one $200> graphics card and no cf/sli ever
Does mATX run hotter then ATX?
Primarily going to be used for games and regular use.
