will My CPU fit this motherboard?

I was thinking of buying the i7 2600k for my next upgrade so i'm able to play my favorite game "PUBG" And i was just curious..

Will the i7 2600k Fit in this?
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Maistore-Computer-Mainboard-Motherboard-Interface/dp/B07588Q3H6/ref=sr_1_3?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1512468881&sr=1-3&keywords=socket+1155+motherboard

Or can i get some other suggestions for different motherboards that will fit it? I'm not looking to spend any more than $60 because i'm broke.

Thanks!

  1. Yes, it will physically fit. However, that is a lower end chipset and questionable quality product. I can't find CPU compatibility info for this mystery mobo. I suppose for the cost, it is worth the gamble.

    This is very true, if the OP has the budget for a new CPU, mobo, and memory.

  7. The Motherboard you linked me before the https://www.amazon.co.uk/Gigabyte-GA-H61M-DS2-DVI-Motherboard-PC-1333/dp/B00AWJC1M4/ref=sr_1_4?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1514993561&sr=1-4&keywords=socket+1155+motherboard

    Does the i7 2600k fit in it still? And i noticed it uses DDR3 so i wouldn't have to buy DDR4 Ram, just to confirm .. here's my parts (can you please confirm for me that all my stuff will fit in that £95.92 Motherboard? :( )

    Mini Gigabyte GeForce GTX 960 OC edition 2GB
    Stock Intel cooler for the i7 2600k? (I have one laying around)
    QUIET ARTIC BLUE 750W ATX PSU 8 PIN -MOLEX - PCI-E & 120mm BLUE FAN POWER SUPPLY

    That's pretty much it, i would just need to order that Motherboard you linked me (If it fits of course)
    and the i7 2600k.. i will later upgrade to i7 8400 once i have the money, for now i just wanna enjoy myself some PUBG :D

    Yes, the Gigabyte mother is socket 1155, like your i7-2600. They are compatible.

    Yes, that motherboard uses DDR3 memory, NOT DDR4.

    Yes, your GPU and power supply (not a very one, but sufficient) will work as well.

  10. Check with local businesses for part-time help they may require (I assume you are still in school).

    Check Craigslist (for your area, of course). For example: https://london.craigslist.co.uk/d/jobs/search/jjj

    Look at the "extras" for film. You get paid and get to be on screen (my wife and daughter are film makers).

    https://london.craigslist.co.uk/tfr/d/short-movie-roles-available/6446364898.html

    However, be careful and cautious with all of these. If it doesn't feel right, walk away. Some of these listings are truly deplorable and laughable.
