Picked up one of these CPU's on a recent US trip and 16GB of DDR3 Crucial RAM
Decided to get the MB back here since that if that fails it's easier to return than if I got that in the US also.
Goal is good system for games (not high-end) and general web browsing etc.
Thought I would go for one of these MB's
The CPU has built-in graphics which should be pretty good but can upgrade the graphics later if he wishes.
Probably put Windows 7 on it(though he has the upgrade to 10), 256GB SSD.
The price is right for this MB
but thoughts on alternatives would be appreciated
