[QUOTE=iccows;2507237]thank you for your help but one other thing i wanted to buy a NVIDIA Geforce GTX260 graphics card however the graphics card is SLI will the motherboard in the link above support this and will this cpu fit both the gigabyte mtherboard and support the SLI graphics card ???
Regrettably, that CPU will not fit the GigaByte motherboard that you linked to. In fact, that GigaByte motherboard is for Intel Core i3/i5/i7 Socket 1156 processors. And of the quad-core processors, the least expensive CPU that’s compatible with that GigaByte motherboard is the Intel Core i5-750 (less expensive Intel processors compatible with that GigaByte motherboard are only dual-core; however, those dual-core i-series processors can use the onboard graphics capabilities of the H55 chipset that cannot be used by the higher-end processors - in other words, a PCIe graphics card is required with a quad-core CPU on that motherboard).
