I really just need to find a motherboard D:

Hi!

My list is nearly done, I'm just missing a motherboard to find.

http://fr.pcpartpicker.com/list/VwW28K

I already own the power supply, case and storage. So I only need to buy the CPU (~125€), the GPU (~150€), RAM (~40€) and a motherboard.

I'd need a motherboard that is rather cheap (around 50-60€. That's $55-66), in ATX form and which supports DDR4 ram. If impossible, would it be dumb to buy a smaller motherboard considering I've got a mid-tower?

Thanks for your help. c:

Just one problem - the cheapest motherboard on this site (that will work with your parts) is 60€.
Regardless, here's what I found:

With the GPU, check out this list. It will tell you the cheapest GPUs that are equal to or better than the 960.

60€ is an okay price for me. Which motherboard is it? The MSI H110M PRO-D is a Micro ATX. Which I don't mind getting, I'm just wondering if it would be stupid of me to get a Micro ATX motherboard when I have a midtower case.

As for the GPU, I can't find any other one that is equal/better for the same prize?

Check this list for GPUs of similar performance. Right now the champion is the XFX R9 380, but this can change.

The XFX R9 380 costs 180€, whereas the GTX 960 is 150€ on the website I'm buying from. :/ And the link you send just sends to a complete list of GPUs which don't seem to have a similar performance/prize :O

Ooh, I should have clarified on the list: It's GTX 960-level performance or better. If there is a more powerful GPU for a lower price, you could find it on this list if you sort by price. I just checked the list, and the GTX 960 that you picked is now on top. I mentioned it before: "Right now the champion is the XFX R9 380, but this can change."
