Hello all!
A friend of mine gave me free a i5 6500 cpu
What motherboard do you suggest to buy?

1) Must accept new generation cpu compatibility for future upgrade
2) Cheap but good... VFM
3) If it is possible to have 4 dim slots

Thank you in advance

i5-6500 will fit in the following chipsets: B150, B250, H110, H170, H270, Z170, Z270

There isn't much point in looking at future upgrades if you have that chip to work with. While LGA1151 is the socket type for Z370 (and I suppose now Z390, B360, and B310) they re-wired the pins so they aren't backwards compatible.

If you bought any 200 series board now, in the future you could drop in an i7-7700k.
