Hello

im hopeing some one can help im a littil lost

So I'm looking for the best Motherboard for this processor
Few things I don't mind if it uses DDR 3 or 4 but if possible a full-size motherboard or gaming one
if it could be easily available and not one that is very hard to find even better

anyway, thank you :)

Edit Budget £100 to £150

If it is just a 6700 and not a 6700K, no reason to shop for Z170/270 as there will be no overclocking anyway; with many B250/Z270 boards available, choose a brand name with a good price... (oddly, the $90 B250 board appears increasingly rare these days, unlike a few years ago...; I'd certainly not enjoy paying $200 for a B250 board, as a complete faster CPU and mainboard could be assembled for marginally more money)

Edit: Newegg's Asus Z270-A Prime prices are ridiculous, at $320....; find a B250 for $90-$95....

I ran a Gigabyte Gaming 7 Z170 board with great success. The 6700k sells for a good bit used, you could sell it and get a newer CPU and board too if funds allow. If not just get a board that will work with the 6700, if your not OC you don't need the "BEST"board.

In my understanding all the boards for that chip would be DDR4.
