I've decided to use a i5 4670k with the r9 290. This being my first build I am rather confused with the amount of z87 boards. I plan on OCing so please point me towards a good board. I would like a cheap one but I don't want to miss out or end up regretting being cheap. My builds below if I left anything important out.
This one is about $10 more but has amazing OC potential: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-motherboard-z87pro all the ASUS mobo's have good bio's and good Japanese capacitors
All right thanks, I will change to that then.
This MSI is also outstanding http://pcpartpicker.com/part/msi-motherboard-z87g45gaming its a little less and will OC like crazy. It also has more customer reviews but about the same rating out of 5 so ya.
i would say go with the Msi Z87 Mpower. this board is on a rediculous sale at the moment.$149,99 ather $20 MiR. As far as overclock feutures goes, they all there,16 powerphases for the cpu, so thats realy sollid. also this board has bluetooth and wifi onboard.
Grtz Angel ☺
I heard the M power has audio problems, do you know anything about a patch for that yet?
its unknown to me, then i have to research that ☺
I heard that even though that mobo has a special dedicated area of the board just to do audio (most of the lower left hand corner in fact) that the audio was just horrible. I saw that on multiple pcpartpicker builds with that board.
