New Motherboard and CPU

Recommended Posts

In the few months I'm planning on upgrading the motherboard and CPU of my system. I want a new one and I'm willing to spend about ?200 on the CPU and motherboard together. I'm looking for an intel CPU, possibly i5 4th gen. However, I want the board to be an updated one (PCIE 3.0, USB 3.0 etc) it needs to be ATX and support my black and blue colour scheme.

 

I've looked at the i5 4460 for the upgrade. Would this be a good choice??

Thank you! :)

 

P.S. exams finish this week so I'll be far more active :P

I'm currently using the i5 4460 and I had no issues with it. more than enough for me atm. my mother board is

[td]Asus H97-PLUS, Intel H97, S1150, DDR3, Quad CrossFireX, D-Sub, DVI-D, HDMI, ATX????? [/td]

but it won't match your colour scheme

 

the i5 4460 was ?139.38 when I bought it but seems to gone up on same website to ?144 so I saved a ?5 I guess lol

 

this will fit your colour scheme but it may push past your total budget scheme by like ?10-20

I've heard ASRock aren't a great brand when it comes to motherboards. Any idea?

 

As for the processor it seems like the right choice then :)

      New Years is right around the corner, so I thought that now would be a good time to post this thread. Do you have any New Years resolutions for next year? How have you done on yours from this  (soon to be over) year? For myself, I didn't set any this past year. For the following year, one of my goals is to spend less time browsing forums and social media, and instead, I'd should spend that time looking at and doing more productive stuff.

    • New map in progress - Free Build

      I don't usually announce a new map being created, but given that I've recently got back into Crusader 2, I've noticed one massive gripe...   SIEGES FOR FREE BUILD SPAWN IN THE MOST RIDICULOUS SPOTS EVER AND RUIN THE FUN!   Therefore, I am making a free build map with sensible siege spawns, to allow you to defend sensibly against a realistic enemy attack! Keep your eyes peeled! :P
