  2. A B75 and a H61 are the two chipsets that have been suggested to me already. I would be better off going with a B75?
  3. Well the b75 mobos has more features, but if you want a good mobo h61 cheap check this one :

  4. That one says DDR3-1333, will that simply limit the memory to 1333, or will I have to buy different RAM?
  5. 2 x DDR3 DIMM slots
    - Supports DDR3 1600/1333/1066 non-ECC, un-buffered memory

    By the way that processor doesn't support 1600 mhz ddr3, only 1066/1333.
    You don't need to change the ram though, it will just downclock to 1333mhz.
  6. You're right. I knew there was something that would limit my system from the 1600 mhz, I didn't realize the processor could limit it though. Thanks for the help, I think I've got what I need.
