Budget mobo for i5-3470 and HD 7850

Config so far: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/GBdh

I won't be overclocking and I might CrossFire later on. I won't be upgrading any time soon so unless I find a better CPU at that price, I am sticking to this.

My options are:



Also, do I need the cooler?

  1. Best answer
    You don't need a cooler, the stock cooler is fine for such cpu.
    I recommend the asrock h77 pro 4 mvp, since it has more features for the money, it has 4 Sata III ports, the realtek ALC892 audio onboard, overall a good motherboard.
    Keep in mind all of those will allow you to crossfire, but at 16x/4x.
  2. Decided to just look at the h77 chipsets,

    That is,
    ASRock H77 Pro4/MVP
    MSI ZH77A-G41
    Gigabyte GA-H77-DS3H

    Alright, so the ASRock H77 is the best out of those 3, yeah? Thanks for your Answer, Django.
  3. Yes, it has more features for the price.
