Hello, i have a question what mobo should i choose. My initial plan was to do a budget build and wait for amd zen I still want to. But i want to have the option to upgrade if i have the chance. I want the mobo to be a micro or mini itx. If i dont go with zen i would like the ability to upgrade to a k cpu. But i don't know if the performance gain will be enough for it. Considering must gaming benchmark show little difference from a oc i5 to a stock i5. I dont have a problem buying used items, that's how i have managed to save most of my money. Currently have a gtx 970 paid $225, a 750w evga b2 $45, and 16gb of ram from amazon for $64.47.
The mobo has to be under $80 the highest i can go is 90 but the cheaper the better. I can get a i 4160 for $99 or i could buy a hp pc with a i5 4590 for $200 even less and sell the rest of the parts. What mobo should i choose.
