    help me choose a motherboard


    I've found all parts I want except the motherboard.. there are so many to choose from so I hope you can advise a few.


    HD Radeon 7850
    i5 2500k
    Corsair Vengeance 8gb 1600 MHz
    Corsair GS series 600w
    WD Caviar Blue 500gb
    NZXT Guardian 921

    I know I should get Z77 chipset but which motherboard with this chipset? The cheaper the better ofc...
    I got ps/2 connector (I hope I'm naming it correct but I guess you know what I mean) for both my mouse and keyboard (the green and purple slots) and I see a lot of motherboards that have only 1 slot so i can only plug in the keyboard or mouse... do motherboards still exist with 2 slots?

    FYI I'm not going to use 2 GPU's soon

    Thanks guys!!!
