My work computer is very slow, and so I am looking to upgrade some of the parts. I have the intel i5-4440 that I'm going to put in it, but this CPU is not compatible with my current motherboard.
Here's the slightly esoteric requirement: I work with programming EtherCAT boards over an Ethernet port, and I also like to use Ethernet for my internet connection. Unfortunately, my current motherboard only has one Ethernet port, and no wifi card. This means I will frequently switch out my Ethernet cord from the router to the board I'm working on, and it's very annoying to have to pick between an internet connection and talking to the board I'm working on. (I suppose a better solution would be to buy a wifi card, but I'd like to keep the Ethernet connection if I can)
Compatible with the i5 4440 CPU, DDR3 RAM and the GTX 610 GPU.
At least 4 USB ports.
Relatively cheap. I'm thinking around 70 USD.
- USB 3.0 would be awesome, but I could settle for 2.0 if I had to.
I don't have any strong brand or appearance preferences.
