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 :)

      Hey, so my boyfriend got me into playing Stronghold Crusader and I loved it.  Then he showed me SCE HD, and I bought the games on steam.  After playing through all the single player maps like 20 times, I'm bored and went looking for some more maps to download.  First off, Im a win 7 geek, and have Win10.  I have NO idea where maps go, how to differentiate between all this lingo I'm seeing, (apparently there are a bunch of games I just became aware of?)  Anyways, so can anyone please tell me what
