This is my first build and I want to build a system that will last. I am not a gamer, so that is not my purpose, but I also don't want something that will be outdated soon.

 

Here is what I am looking at getting and I would like to get some opinions about the motherboard I should get.

 

CPU:

http://www.newegg.co...N82E16819113284

 

Memory:

http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820226404

 

Motherboard:

This is where I am not sure which would be the best one to get. Here are 3 that I am looking at.

http://www.newegg.co...N82E16813128817

http://www.newegg.co...N82E16813128859

 

 

I am open to suggestions, but I prefere ASUS or GIGABYTE as far as motherboads go. I also prefer AMD over Intel.

 

Thanks and I am looking forward to all comments and opinions.

AMD is a good option :)

 

My best bet is the Sabertooth it's pretty nifty and good looking. Next it would like you have tiger skin in your tower which will look fierce and nice!

:welcome: djarelt.

AMD benefits from the natively supported DDR3 1866, so that's what I would use.

 

If you are going to overclock, I would choose the Asus.

If you are not going to game, then the UD3 as there would be no real benefit from all the PCI choices on the UD5.

 

NB. the Asus is an open box item, will only come with I/O sheild, cd and manual, nothing else, also no 5 year warranty, only Newegg 30 day.

Thank you, that is what I was hoping to get from posting on here. I wont be overclocking. I just want to make sure that my system wont be outdated next week.

Budget permitting and knowing the specific use for the system,  I would have configured a Intel Skylake build
