I need some one to tell me is there any difference between core i7 and 3rd gen core i7 when chosing a motherboard? This is my first time building a desktop so I'm just looking at components right now. The CPU I'm currently looking at is the
When I looked on newegg and filtered my search when I chose 3rd gen i7 as CPU I only had 3 to chose from and they 2 weren't meant for a gaming build and the last had a very low customer rating. Thanks to anyone who can help me.
Not all motherboards will support the 3rd Generation cpu's out of the box, some will need a bios update. Examples would be mobo's with older chipsets (p67). What is youre budget for this mobo? We would be happy to suggest somthing.
