Looking for a new mobo + SSD

Hey everyone how are we doing?

In the next month i hoping to get a ATX mobo because my 660ti covers my Sata ports and i don't like having to bend the socket to fit it in
but i don't know what to look for with a ATX mobo and here is where you come in :)

my limit will be around $400

The site that i want to buy through is here: http://pccasegear.com/ as i drive there to pick up the stuff


CPU: i5 2300 2.8ghz
GPU: GTX 275
PSU: OCZ fatality 750w
RAM: DDR3 dual channel G.skill 8gigs
OS: WIN7
MOBO: intel DH67BL
Case: CM 690 II Advanced

Thanks in advance :)

    Thanks for the super quick reply

    whats the difference between Z77 and H77?

    i do like the look of the Z77 right angle sata ports and the ability to SLI which i wouldn't mind doing down the track

    And is the Plextor PX-128M5S 128GB SSD a decent brand? i have never heard of it!
  3. Yes, it's a good ssd, with mlc nand and the marvell controller and it's cheap.
    The h77 has all the feature of the z77, minus the overclocking capabilities and SLI support.
    If you're planning to add an unlocked cpu and two nvidia cards, it might be worth it, otherwise, just get the h77 board.
    If you want a faster ssd, there's the samsung 840 pro, but it will cost a lot more : http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=22102

    You'll probably won't notice the difference.

    I do plan on throwing a new CPU in soon hopefully
    128 will be enough for win7 and bf3 yeah?

    I just wish that I knew more about pc's when I brought my current system had to buy a new case and gpu once I brought it barely played cod 4 lol

    Will I need a new to do a fresh install of windows because of the new mobo or can I get software to transfer just the os onto the ssd?
  5. Yes, it will, 128GB is suffice, yes, you must do a fresh install of the windows.
