I just got a i5-3450 and a MSI TF 7850

need to get all the other parts.

I'm on a budget so wondering if a B75 motherboard would be good enough or if i 'should' get a H77.
I want to OC my GPU . but nothing serious. Just upto 1000 Core

link to H77 board - http://www.flipkart.com/gigabyte-ga-h77-ds3h-motherboar...

EDIT : i wont crossfire.
Will run one HDD , one SSD (which i will buy after 4 to 5 months)
So im guessting 1 sata 6Gb/s would be enough. as i can connect the HDDs on sata 3Gb/s

is mATX really that much of a disadvantage? I will not crossfire. And not heavy overclocking. just over 1000 core

Those mobos are usually stripped of features and runs hotter. But they work.

All is in smaller place. And if u need another PCI card its crumpled up : )

I would, but if u wanna do just graphic card and no OC and u have a good cooling case and all that in air-conditioned room, I'd say fine.

If it sits in warm room and u play game, the CPU runs hot + GPU runs hot and all is harder to cool.

Than all your fans are running on max speed and that sucks dust like crazy and after few weeks, the dust will be your enemy, that keeps everything hotter than before.

There is nothing wrong with mATX and it is not harder to cool.

Sure, when everything is in much smaller space it will cool the same as the ATX.

okay we can decide on the case later. but will a B75 perform equal to H77 ? in terms of GPU overclockability?

Being a mATX board dosn't cram things that much closer, mostly what you're missing is the extra addon slots, so the GPU and CPU are still going to be about the same distance apart which shouldn't affect cooling. And if he's going to use a regular sized atx case, he isn't squishing things into a smaller space.

If you plan on using Intel rapid storage technology (for RAID) or intel smart response technology (for SSD caching) then get the H77. B77 doesn't support those features.

nah.. no raid , no ssd caching.. will use a separate ssd for os and apps, a hdd for storage.

Do people actually read the question before they write a reply? This thread isn't particularly worse than others, but I wish people would stick to the question asked, not their pet/stock replies.
