    jonwolds

      Hi,

       

      I am looking to upgrade my motherboard and processor. I am thinking of getting an i5 processor but not sure what is the most appropriate motherboard.

       

      I need an ATX motherboard to support an i5 processor. I have the following graphics and sound card.

       

      Sapphire HD5770 1GB GDDR5 PCI E Graphics Card

      XONAR ESSENCE STX(sound card)

       

      I also have x2 internal TV tuners x1 PCI and x1 PCIe

       

      I am looking for a motherboard that has efficient power consumption.

       

      I run windows 7 ultimate x64 and use the machine as an HTPC and for gaming

       

      Any recommendations will be appreciated.

       

      Thanks
