    New build mobo and graphics suggestions for an i5 cpu
    « on: June 08, 2012, 09:12:42 AM »
    A bit of advice please, which may seem back to front to you, but it will be a starting point.
    This is for a friend of mine who is thinking of buying either an i5/i7 processor, will have Windows 7, and wants to run games such as Skyrim, Minecraft, Team Fortress 2, Diablo 3 and Shogun 2 at high settings.
    Money is not unlimited so for middle of the road prices and reasonable speeds, first of all what Motherboard would you suggest and what graphics card should be fitted.
    All other bits and pieces will be decided later so hope the above is sufficient for now, just to get some ideas.
    Many thanks
