    Default Need help choosing Motherboard/Processor for Gaming PC

    Hello everyone!

    Can anyone tell me which will be the best Motherboard+Processor+RAM for a gaming PC?

    And just so you guys know, the processor has to be in the Intel i7 family. I went to IDB yesterday and found out that only InteL Core i7-930 and Intel Core i7-870 is available. And for motherboard its either Intel DH55HC or Intel DH55PJ. So, any ideas? Please help!!

    Both of them are based on H55 chipset. So, if you want to take any of them, you cannot but go with the i7 870 (supporting H55 and P55), not i7 930 (supporting X58). Also, the cost matters. How much did they want to charge for the CPUs?

    If you want to run multi GPU solutions or need more than 16GB RAM, I recommend X58 to suit your needs. If you want to run single GPU setups, then go with the i7 870. But I guess the i7 870 + H55 (or P55) will be cheaper than the other combination (i7 930 + any X58 motherboard). Read reviews of both CPUs before you buy, to ensure your money grabs the right product for you.
