I am going to upgrade my old pc and i am going to get i5 2400 with http://www.microcenter.com/product/386315/XMS3_Series_1...(PC3-12800)_CL_11_Dual_Channel_Desktop_Memory_Kit_(Two_8GB_Memory_Modules)# I have problem in finding good and cheap motherboard which will support radeon 6450 2gb graphics card, i have already bought ram and graphics card and i cant buy i7 xD
I recommend an H77 board if you want to use ivy bridge cpus someday. My microcenter links aren't working. My board: http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/P8H6... is also good, but I don't see it listed at newegg or microcenter. H61 boards generally require a bios flash to run ivy bridge if you plan on upgrading someday. I already flashed mine, but some folks don't like having to flash the bios, so spend a little more now on H77 in case you change cpus later.
