Solved Building a new gaming PC Tags: Motherboards Gaming Product Last response: January 12, 2013 11:05 PM in Motherboards Share MeicoPotato January 5, 2013 7:04:08 PM 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 for the help man! I didn't know that board didn't have overclocking, so getting the K version of 3750 would be useless. m 0 l MeicoPotato January 12, 2013 11:05:03 PM Best answer selected by MeicoPotato. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
