Closed Which Motherboard Tags: Motherboards Build Intel Last response: August 6, 2012 8:17 AM in Motherboards Share MrSusrus August 5, 2012 1:19:07 AM Hello, I have been trying to put this build together for a while now, but am having issues. here is my build so far: CPU: Intel Core i3-2120 1155pin Boxed CPU http://www.msy.com.au/product.jsp?productId=7186 Video Card: Powercolor 1GB 6870 PCI-E VGA Card http://www.msy.com.au/product.jsp?productId=6839 Case: Coolermaster SGC1000KWN1 SGC-1000 case without PSU http://www.msy.com.au/product.jsp?productId=8530 Power Supply: No clue how much I need. I would like a modular one if possible. Storage: At least 500GB Now, the parts I'm not sure of: Memory: Cant find any suitable Motherboard: Gigbayte GA-H61MA-D3V H61 DDR3 USB3 Intel 1155pin Motherboard - $63 http://www.msy.com.au/product.jsp?productId=8754 OR ASUS P8H61-M DDR3 Intel 1155pin Motherboard(EOL) - $59 http://www.msy.com.au/product.jsp?productId=7435# I'm not sure what the difference is, they both look fairly similar. Also, is there a huge difference between ATX and mATX? Should I be getting an ATX for my build or is an mATX sufficient? Thanks for your help! Oh, and I have to buy everything off http://www.msy.com.au so I don't have to pay shipping. Thanks! More about : motherboard MrSusrus August 5, 2012 2:00:48 AM Anyone please? I really need help with this. I have done more research and it looks like the Gigabyte one has usb 3.0 things, but im not sure. Score 0 Idonno a b V Motherboard August 5, 2012 2:48:23 AM I like the Gigabyte better it has USB 3.0 which is backward compatible with USB 2.0 and a lot faster. It has 6 sata ports (4-SATA 6 two of which have raid support and 2-sata 2) The Asus doesn't have USB 3.0, sata 6 or raid support. It only has usb 2.0 and 2-sata 2 ports but it can use faster Ram. I would buy the Gigabyte and if you go to their (Gigabyte's) site http://www.gigabyte.us/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4... Click on the memory support list on the right As far as ATX and mATX it wont make a difference. Score 0 Can't find your answer ? Ask !
