What motherboard should I buy?

I'm new on building a PC. I'm planning on buying a i7-6700 non K version. I read some reviews about the asus z170 pro gaming MB, but I'm not totally convienced because of some users saying it was aweful.... Plus I want cosair vengeance 2x8 Gb of RAM and I've heard the asus MB has some troubles with that particular brand of memory.

 

I just came here guys for some recommendations of what MB should I buy. I'm not planning to do OC and I have a budget around $150. I want to know maybe what brand is better and the refference. Same with the memories (planning about cosair vengeance but if you suggest any other better I'll be glad to read that).

 

Thanks for your help!

What was it again that you were trying to do with your PC (and if it's gaming, which GPU will you pair it with)?

Right.

 

The asus board will do fine. If you like the way it looks, it's going to suit you well. It's a decent board, and you really don't need all that much with a 6700 non K.

 

As for the RAM, I'm finding the LPX to be expensive. Look, there's this Ripjaws V for 10$ less than an equivalent LPX. And it also has a nice design that I think will complement the MSI Gaming pretty well. Sure, you can pay more for Corsair's RAM if you like the looks of it better. But personally, I'd go with the G.Skill kit.

If your not planning to OC, just get either one of these 2 based on H170, the Z170 doesnt offer much more if you dont oc and you pay premium.
