[SOLVED] Need a motherboard and HDD for cheap build

Sorry for where I posted, I couldn't find an appropriate location.

I'm just setting up a gaming-ish rig and I need a motherboard and 1-2TB HDD that are compatible with these parts, any ideas?

CASE/PSU: Thermaltake V4-450W, Micro ATX/Standard ATX
CPU: Intel i5 3470 3.2GHz quad core
GRAPHICS: Gigabyte Radeon HD 7870 2GB
MEMORY: Kingston 8Gb DDR3 1333MHz

Also, is there anything I'm forgetting? Thanks for your help

    Just get an H77, B75, or Z77 chipset motherboard. I recommend the B75 as it's cheaper and won't require a bios update to post with an ivy bridge cpu. Your cpu won't overclock beyond the "turbo" setting, so a z77 board is overkill unless you find one for a few dollars more then the B75. I use asus, but have also used other brands. Link your vender for better recommendations and list a budget.
  2. just look for an lga-1155 socket that supports AMD GPUs. GTS(google that sh!t)
