Hey guys,
I am looking for an i3 i5 i7 combo (motherboard and CPU)
I really need it to be cheap and good performce.
I would be willing to spend 150£ or maybe 200£
I will be using this for gaming.
And for After Effects cs4

I don't really think I can do an i7. But if it is in my price range by some miricale I would.

I dont really mind what website. But would prefer ebuyer.
It also needs to fit a DC5800 case.


Thanks in advance for replys
Bud

cpu: intel core i5 2400 or core i5 2500k
motherboard: asus z68 v pro gen3
gigabyte z68x ud3h b3
asrock extreme 4/extreme 4 gen3/extreme3 gen3
etc.
look up the review of your chosen motherboard.
is your case sff or mini tower? the biggest problem (after the sff case) would be the (oem?) psu if you want to run discreet gfx cards.

I have microtower not SFF so there is plenty of space to work with
I have a good PSU as i upgraded my GPU not too long ago.

Anyone else have anything that is more towards 150 pound mark

Thanks

What is an ATX mobo
Im quite new to this so im not sure. It has alot of space to work

What would you recommend for gaming
I want to play

The assassin creed series
Skyrim
and others
maybe BF3

I already have a GTS 250. Would that be good enough for what i want to do or would it bottleneck the system?

Thanks

Height: 37.7cm

Do you want to know the mobo one aswell?

I really need this to be 200£ or under but i want to get an i5 2500k + a good mobo with 4 dimm slots

Thanks for all the help so far
