Hello, I'm currently trying to build a gaming rig where I can run Skyrim at max on 1080. As I did more research I realize this could be impossible with just a ~800$ budget so I want one that is as close as possible.

Anyways, my question is what motherboard is best for the i7 3770 or the i5 3570?

EDIT:
I found some motherboards on amazon and was wondering if these are good enough.

I also need a motherboard that is compatible with a GTX 660 or Radeon 7870, and I also need a CPU good for video editing.

A h77 motherboard, for locked cpus, and for gaming, i'd get the i5-3470, no need for the i7, or the i5 3570.

Like this one : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

By the way, if you don't need the on die gpu, i recommend this i5 : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

It's at 170$ after promo code.

Thank you for replying to my post so quickly. I forgot to add info about video editing in my post. Would the i7 still be

necessary if I need to use my computer to video edit? Also with the i7, I thought I would get better fps on Skyrim or is

there something I'm missing here?

You won't get more fps with the i7, that depends on the card you'll have, the i7 is useful for video editing, it depends on the usage/intensity of it, if it's not much, an i5 will do just fine, if not, get the i7.
