My System Specs


It will fit 1155. 1155 is the same as 1156, but missing 1 pin.

Here is what I would get:

Asus P8Z77-V Lk ATX Motherboard - $140
Intel Core i5 3470 3.2Ghz Quad Core Processer - $189.99
XFX Radeon HD7850 Core Edition - $189.99
Crucial M4 128GB SSD - $112.98

Total: $632.96

I like ASUS, but if you wanted to save a little money, you could alternatively pick:

MSI Z77A-G45 ATX Motherboard - $89.99

HTPC: Z77A-G45; 3770K; Zalman FX70; 2x4GB Kingston HyperX 1600Mhz; MSI GTX960; 2x 128GB Crucial M4 SSD; 4TB WD Red, 2x 2TB WD Green; Corsair RM650I; Corsair Carbide 600C;
Son's Rig: M5A97; FX8350; CNPS20LQ; 2x4GB Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz; Powercolor 7950; 250GB Crucial MX200; 320GB WD Black HDD; SPI 700W; Bitfenix Shinobi;
