First build gaming pc


Nov 16, 2010
I've already picked all of my parts except for the motherboard which i was hoping someone could give me a little bit of advice on.

The current parts i have chosen are

i5 3570K
XFX HD 7870 Core edition DD 2Gb
Corsair vengance 8Gb (2x4Gb) DDR3 1600Mhz
Corsair 600W CX BuilderSeries
WD 500Gb blue desktop drive
CM Storm enforcer case
Samsung SH-222BB SATA DVD Write Optical Drive

i have also chosen the Samsung S22B300H LED LCD 21.5" HDMI Monitor.

The pc will be mainly used for gaming at 1920 x 1080 resolution and the games i will be mainly playing are Skyrim, Battlefield 3, Far cry 3 and GTA.

Aslo my budget for the motherboard is around£70-£100 and i am living in the UK so sites like newegg are no good for me.

Does anyone have any suggestions on what motherboard would be best for my system?

Also if anyone has any comments on whether or not they think this is a good build that'd be very helpful.
