My old mobo died yesterday hence i am forced to retire my Q6600.
Since i wasn't planning to upgrade, i am extremely tight on budget.
I will go for Intel i5 4670 K and need your recommendations on mother board.
My requirement is pretty simple, the motherboard should accommodate - HD 7970, PCI - Xtreme music audio card, 3 SATA HDD and should atleast support minor overclocking.
Since i am tight on budget - i have shortlisted this Gigabyte motherboard
Your inputs will be highly appreciated.
EDIT: Did some research and found out that i need mobo with Z87 chipset if i want to overclock.
The above research raises a query - is there no way possible to overclock if i jump on H81 chipset ?EDIT On 27th May: My new set up is ready but my LED has no display when i connect it with HD 7970 - i have tried everything (Bios update - driver update) but there is just no display...
When i start my PC - the LED would show 1080P at 50HZ but it wont show any screen updates... I checked the card on other Monitors and its working fine. I am stumped, please help.
I would like to further add, i have 2 back up cards HD 4850 and HD5850 both are working ok on my LED, i am confused nothing like this has ever happen before...
