1st post. i7 4970k w/ gigabyte z97x gaming 3
Hi. This is my very 1st post.
I am building a PC right now. Well actually buying all the components, then building.
I just bought the Intel i7 4970k Crucial Ballistix 16gb DDR3 RAM. I also got the Gigabyte Z97X Gaming 3 mobo.
MY background and experience with PC's is minimal to none. I am replacing our home desktop PC. I could go buy 1 pre-built. But I want this challenge.
Our PC will only be used for the basics. Email, browsing, word documents, possibly some light gaming in the future. But most storing family pics, vids etc. I might like to get into some home video editing in the future.
Is this mobo good for my needs.
I would like to build the biggest and baddest PC I can.
The more bells and whistles it comes with but I don't have Im ok with.
I've been reading about bottlenecking.
Will this mobo hold me back from performance from my CPU?
Will it limit what I can add or do to my PC in the future?
