I'm building a PC in about a week, ordering most of the parts Friday, (already ordered the case and the 4670k) and I'm curious as to what some good motherboards are. I'm looking to buy on Amazon since I'm a prime member, but if Newegg or something has a really good price I'll consider it.

I don't plan on cross firing or whatever that is since I don't even know what that means. I'm just looking for a good, reliable motherboard. It can't exceed $115

Also suggestions on RAM (8 GB) for under 85 dollars would be nice.

Edit: I'm getting a gtx 760 if it matters.

Lowest I'd go is like the ASUS z87-A or comparable Gigabyte in the nominal $130-140 range, probably less with bundles.

I can't advise you on any specific products in that price range but i'll lay a few facts out:

Crossfire / SLI means using two graphics cards at the same time (or more). It's not really necessary and one great graphics card is still preferable but could be a nice boost a few years from now where one 760 starts to show its age.

If you're getting a "k" intel processor, the selling point is that you can adjust the multiplier. But you will also need a Z87 motherboard chipset to actually take advantage of that.

Also to do so you need a motherboard which allows you to adjust the multiplier and adjust voltages to keep heat production under control. A lot of the ~$100 motherboards only allow for automatic overclocking, which may produce unwanted heat and insufficient clock speeds. the extra 40 bucks can go a long way.

finally, higher end motherboards have a few other potential benefits:

- The onboard sound might have more powerful output stages which can have its benefits.
- the BIOS updates can be more frequent meaning better RAM support etc
- there might be more customer reviews online to get a sense of what you're buying

as for RAM, although i use kingston stuff, I would probably recommend G.Skill Ripjaws DDR1600 @ 1.5v

I was looking at this one on my most recent build. But ultimately went with the G45 for $140.

I wouldn't advise it, Intel motherboards are high for a reason
