Which motherboard

Could you help me with finding a motherboard that is compatible with the:

AMD 7850 GPU


i5 3750 CPU

I've just started researching computer components and find the motherboards to be completely overwhelming, it's all gibberish to me!

I intend the computer to be used for gaming and in total to cost about £500/£600.

Thanks in Advance.

More about which motherboard
  1. do you plan to run cossfire in future?
  2. and your budget?
  3. Crossfire is when you use multiple GPUs right?

    I don't intent to right now, but if that is what it will all be like in the future, should I start drifting into it?

    As for my budget for the motherboard, I don't really know how much these things cost but with my total budget of the whole computer being around £500, I assumed the motherboard would be around the £100 mark, although I fear I may be completely off...
  4. I'll assume that you wont be Overclocking your cpu (or would you rather choose a "K" series processor?) with that established, you should get a B75 or H77 chipset mobo. Now depending on whether you want to go for cross fire, a mobo with that support can be picked out.

    some good choices: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157314


    These of course are newegg links and you will have to locate these in stores you plan to buy from.

    good luck
  5. Difference between B75 and H77?...well none in real world scenarios. B75 is a little cheaper.

    refer to this page for some guide lines on building your PC : http://assassinhtpcblog.com/?page_id=160#ivybridge

    it will also tell you more about the chipsets etc.

    have fun :)
