I am looking to build my first computer, and i have a shopping list set up, except i just found out my CPU isn't compatible with my motherboard, so if anyone has any suggestions for a new one i would love to hear them.
Here's the system specs:

Gskill ripjaws 16gb DDR3 1600 RAM

OCZ Vertex 4 128gb ssd

Galaxy geforce GTX 670 4gb GPU

Cooler Master storm trooper case

Intel core i5 3570k CPU

Enermax pro82+ 625w power supply

2 120mm front fans, 1 140mm rear fan, 1 200mm top fan

ASUS 24x DVD burner


Again, this is my first build, so any and all advice would be appreciated.

any motherboard with a Z77 chipset will be compatible. id just pick the cheapest board, unless there arent enough places to plug in the fans.

Would a cheaper board be slower, or just have less features?

the motherboard doesnt exactly affect your speeds. it just supports things up to a certain speed, but thats all in the chipset, rather than the motherboard itself. there are only two chipsets to consider for your hardware: Z75 and Z77 (they are similar, but you might as well go with Z77). features may be limited though, yes, but unless you need those features, no point paying for what you wont use.

With your specs, I would get the MSI Z77-GD45. It goes for about $124 US and A GREAT BOARD.

Umm thats a AMD board not Intel/ It will not work..


OP every Z77 board is very good from Asus, Gigabyte, MSI, ASRock and Biostar. I tested em all and really did not have a bad experience with any of them. CPU performance wise: they all will be about .5% within each other so whatever you pick is OK. Overclocking helps a bit on the more expensive boards with better power phase but that should not be of any concerns. The recommendation for the MSI GD45 is a good one. More expensive board s just have more features that you probably would never need. PCIe 3.0, USB 3.0, Sata III 6G is all you need and it has it all.

What about Gigabyte z77? GIGABYTE Z77 series motherboards take advantage of an exclusive All Digital PWM controller array, to deliver power to the board's 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processor. Using entirely digital controllers means that more precise power delivery to the motherboard's most power hungry and energy sensitive components is possible. These components include the CPU, VTT, processor graphics and memory, without doubt the most important components on your motherboard. This All Digital Power system, with Precise Auto Voltage Compensation, provides you with exceptional control over the component power delivery on your GIGABYTE 7 series motherboard.

Hello,

My PC has now been old and that time I purchased an ASUS P5 gcmx motherboard which was good not optimum.I would suggest you for Intel motherboard they are giving best services and they are reliable too.
