Hello, I just recently decided to build my own computer. I am very new at this and want to use the computer mostly for gaming. I'm seeking advice on the best motherboard that is compatible with an intel i5 4670k CPU. I would prefer to use wifi rather than an ethernet cord due to lack of space. I could also use advice on over clocking and if it is even worth my time. How much RAM should I have? Lastly, I really need some help finding a good graphics card. Thank you very much for your help! :)
