Okay so this is my GPU i'm planning to purchase: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

And now i need a motherboard which will support this card, Basically my CPU cannot be overclocked so there is no need to give me a fancy motherboard, I just need a mobo that has usb 3.0 and can work with this!!! Hopefully it is something under $100 i'm hoping for.

And this is my psu: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Does my psu already have the connecters needed to power up the graphics card???


And this is my case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Will my Graphics card fit in it?

Thanks!!!!

edit: My CPU is intel i5-2400 and 4GB corsair 1333 ram, i can change the ram though if the mobo needs it.

The amperage on that PSU is a little low.I would suggest goign with this PSU.

Seasonic 520watt $75+ Free Shipping

That PSU is a little bit more expensive but it's a really good reliable PSU.

What CPU and RAM do yo have?Can't really look for a mobo unless I know what you need/have.

EDIT: Just re-read your post and I see you already have that PSU.To answer your question, yes it already has the PCI-Express connectors which you will need for the card.And after looking at the PSU again you should actually be fine.It support up to 400watts and you won't even come close to using that much.

Expandibility is always a good thing to look for when choosing for a mobo.Even tho you may not use some of the features it offers currently it's possible in the future you may have a need for them.

Here's a great mobo.

Do you think you would crossfire your 6870 in the future?

i HIGHLY doubt i'll crossfire my gpu in the future. Ehhh $115 seems a little high priced but i'll try to fit it in.

i've added it, i can't add in a mobo for $115 without any rebates on it, $100 would probably be my max

Well unless your going for a Foxconn or Biostar mobo the rest below $115 are all Micro-ATX.They aren't bad but their not great for expandiblity and it would look wierd because the 6870 is a huge card,it would be sticking off the side of the mobo about a couple inches.

^^ Yeah i know what you mean, It's hard to find brand names for high, I guess i can sacrifice something for a high mobo?

I've been looking for a while and i've found some really good mobo's for under $100 but they didn't have any USB 3.0's.Basicly anything under $100 is gonna be Micro so I think i've found the best you can for under $100.

That's pretty good + has usb 3.0.

And does the micro atx really look that weird with a full size gpu?

I think I was looking at that mobo before.I dunno why I didn't choose it tho.O I c why,I was looking for upgradeability and saw that it only supported 16GB while the other one supported 32GB.Although it doesn't really matter.Basicly the difference I see between the mobos is that the Micro version has 7.1 audio and supports 32GB but you'll never use that much RAM anyway.

Go with that one that you picked its a good mobo.

The 6870 is 10" long and your average Micro mobo is around 9" long.It just looks unproportional.
