I'm planing on building my own pc and i'm thinking about what hardware I should get.
I'm a complete newbiew when it come to hardare (check my spces
), so i will probably ask a lot of stupid questions.
The one ting i have no idea about is what's a good motherboard?
My requirements are that its CPU socket fits for i7-900 (socket LGA1366), that it has PCI express, DDR3 SDRAM and USB 3.0. Easy to install (in terms of components) and has great build quality.
When it comes to Hardrive support, I have no clue in what to buy. I'm thinking in getting a small SDD to put windows 7 system files on and buy HD (any recommendations would be great) to put my software and data on. I also want this motherboard to last for a fair while (is 10 years asking too much). I would like it to be compatible with any new technologies that could become mainstream in the next few years.
Are the top motherboards like ASUS Rampage worth it, or are they just rip offs?
When it comes to price, i'm willing to pay top dollers for this if the motherboard is really worth it. But I would prefer to look at some thing between $200-$300.
I'm still planing my new comp so It will be a few months before I actually buy this comp. Will there be any good new motherboard coming out with in a year?
Any help would be appreciated.
