Hi!
im looking to buy a motherboard for a intel core i3-2100 processor,
i dont need overclock (but it would be nice if it's possible)
any compatible chipset if fine, i dont need pci support, pci express 1x
would be good enough, it doenst need sli, or crossfire,
just 6 or 7 pcie slots (1 for graphics card)
i want onboard graphics, and usb 3.0 doesnt matter
just a simple motherboard, also im trying to go for a price around $50-$60
please reply

Hi. Do you mind buying from other websites too or only Newegg.ca? You can't overclock with that processor and you can't find a motherboard that supports overclocking, or have 6 or 7 PCI Express (x1 or x16) slots for that price. I think you meant to say PCI slots? The processor has integrated graphics. If you must buy from Newegg, then any H61 motherboard for less than $60 here: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=EN...

If you want 6 PCI slots, get this: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...

If you're willing to buy from other websites, there are a couple of B75 motherboard here:

What's your budget and monitor resolution? You may be spending too much on the CPU and too little on the GPU.

I think you're spending too much on the CPU just to overclock it and play those games. The graphics card is probably sufficient or you can even get the GTX 650 Ti for a little more.

i found an EVGA GeForce GTX 650 Ti SSC 1071MHZ 1GB 5.4GHZ GDDR5 2xDVI Minihdmi PCI-E Video Card, (thats the listing in the online store XD) will it bottleneck or anything like that? its $10 more which makes my thing $220 above my budget (it was $200 before, dont build gaming pc's on a $500 budget) anyway, my psu doesnt have enough amps on 12v rails to power the gtx 650ti my psu has 18 amp and the card needs 20, will that be ok?

I made a few changes to your build. If the GTX 650 Ti is only $10 more than the HD 7770 you wanted, then I think it's worth getting; the HD 7770 is fine too though.

Also I don't know if you can reuse your old Dell case because the motherboard may not fit and there might not be enough clearance for the cooler. I think it's better to just get a nice case instead. And I don't see the Gigabyte motherboard for that price on DirectCanada.

If your case can accommodate an ATX board, then you'll be fine. Get the XFX 450W I listed above. Are you saying you'll be ordering the parts in 5 months? If so, then you should you wait for next gen CPUs and GPUs and then reconsider your options.

we;;see i want breathing room to upgrade later, and the psu calculator at http://www.extreme.outervision.com/PSUEngine says i should be looking for around 460W, and that one is 10W less i want upgrade room and im planning on running this pc 24/7 and using it for at least 5 more years. dont say this isnt possible, i have an intel pentium 1 pc running windows nt (obviously i dont use it, but it works and is like over 10 years old) anyway, mabey later ill crossfire the 7770 with another 1. and i dont care about new stuff, the old stuff works for minecraft and thats for sure. right now i use a laggy laptop with a broken screen hooked up to a monitor, i despretly need a new pc.

I still think it's better to go with an non-overclocking i5 and H77 motherboard to save money instead. The 450W PSU will power the i5-3570K and a HD 7770 easily. But since you're going to upgrade later, a bigger PSU won't hurt. Here's the PSU from DirectCanada: http://www.directcanada.com/products/?sku=16950AC3542&v...

Maybe you should keep the i3-2100 for now then upgrade to the i5-3570K later when you have the money?

Well you're currently over the budget. If you intend to have all the parts you want, you'll have to go with the i3 until then which can run those games easily. There isn't another way.
