    For the CPU i recommend going for the Intel Core i5-4690K, it is a very good CPU and should last you between 1-2 years, and for the mobo, it does not matter (for performance) what mobo you get, you should get a mobo that has the ports you need for your computer and wether you are using DDDR 2 DDDR 3 or DDDR 4 ram

    have yet to see a game where the core i5 is too slow to keep up with mid/high end range GPU's and demanding games like GTA V/Crysis/BF
