Hi, I'm upgrading my pc with an i7 6700k and a gtx 1060 is my current motherboard (asus H81M-PLUS) good enough for the build or do I need to buy a better motherboard?

    If I'm remembering correctly, H81 was Ivy Bridge or early Haswell. If that's the case, you'll need to upgrade to a compatible motherboard. I recommend a z170 board since you have a K variant i7
  2. No, you won't be able to use with your mobo. You'll need a 1x0 series chipset motherboard for the i7-6700k.

    The best processor that motherboard should support is the i7-4790(k).
