Hello, I'm looking to build a new gaming PC.

I don't know much about motherboards, so I need to be very sure before I buy one.

I'm planning to get an Intel i5-2500K CPU. I'm also planning to get an AMD graphics card (not sure which one, will probably be a HD 7770).


I don't know anything about motherboards, so I need one that is compatible with both. And I need one that I can afford.

Suggestions?

Thanks, but I already found one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

That board will not allow you to use the overclocking feature of your 2500K, this will http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Z77 board is best, Z75 allows for overclock as well but missing other features.

Thanks for the help man!

I didn't know that board didn't have overclocking, so getting the K version of 3750 would be useless.
