MSI Z77A-G45 http://www.amazon.co.uk/MSI-Z77A-G45-Motherboard-Pentiu... Asus P8Z77-V LX http://www.scan.co.uk/products/asus-p8z77-v-lx-intel-z7...(x16)-dvi-d-hdmi-d-sub-atx-us Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H http://www.amazon.co.uk/Gigabyte-GA-Z77-D3H-SKT-1155-Z7... Also, is the motherboard an important component? should i spend less on my cpu and gpu to get a better motherboard? Thanks in advance. More about : motherboard excella1221 November 13, 2012 3:45:15 PM I choose the Gigabyte. It has more features than the overpriced ASUS, and I don't generally suggest MSI motherboards, so yeah. Sret43rg November 13, 2012 4:16:44 PM Should i spend less on my CPU and GPU and spend more on the motherboard? or will the Gigabyte be fine?

Sret43rg November 13, 2012 7:59:44 PM Bump excella1221 November 13, 2012 11:37:51 PM I could find little to no info about the casing, so I can't say for sure, but it doesn't look like it'll fit. How much are you willing to go for a casing? Sret43rg November 14, 2012 5:52:16 AM I'm willing to pay around £45 for the case which is around $70 kelvin08113 November 14, 2012 7:45:56 AM I recommend the ASUS because I have no problems using ASUS motherboards since I'm 2, creepy eh? Anyway, ASUS is more stable if you do overclock, enjoy! Sret43rg November 15, 2012 5:52:51 AM Anybody suggest me a case for £45? excella1221 November 15, 2012 6:03:12 AM This is the cheapest I can suggest that I like. http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B006TVQTHW/?tag=pcp0f-21 Has a maximum height support of 170mm for CPU coolers. The 212 EVO is 159mm, so you have plenty of headroom. kelvin08113 November 15, 2012 6:03:31 AM YOu can have this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... and it's cheaper, my friend is using it but it does not have a fan on the back, you can swap with the front one or buy one.
