    That's fine but you'd probably want a Z77 motherboard instead of a Z75, and then you'd need a basic air cooler like the Hyper 212. But that shouldn't really alter the cost that much.
  4. What a the best Z77 board aroudn teh price range of the upper one that will do the job ?

    Good low cost models are the Gigabyte Z77X-DS3H and the Asrock Z77 Extreme 4.
