Depends on what you aim to do with it but you would probably be alright with a dual core i3 haswell, it's a hair under 100 bucks new and would probably be the lowest one considered usable, 1150 is a dead socket though probably going to be obsolete in 5 years or less so you might find some deals on used parts for that on ebay.

Reviews state it supports Gen 4 or 5 Intel Core i7/i5/i3 processors. I have several Dell PCs - two with i5s and one with i7. Windows 7 on one i5. Windows 10 on one i5 and the i7 - Windows 10 seems to run faster on the i5 than the i7, both with 16GB of RAM. But that's just my experience.

After several Dell's, and getting tired with help online or via phone whenever I had a problem, I found a local computer tech company, and I had them build a new computer for me with the latest software. They also took all the data from two old computers and installed those files & photos on the new computer. I have plenty of memory and have a continuous backup as well. All of that work, including a one year warranty for anything was well worth the $1,454. It's also nice to know I can get help & upgrades when needed for reasonable cost.

Just wondering why you chose that particular motherboard. I would personally stay away from the Core i3 processors - just not worth the investment. If you can find a similar motherboard (ATX) that utilizes an AMD AM4 socket, you can get more bang for your buck with a Ryzen 5 or Ryzen 7 processor.

One thing to keep in mind is if you can install anything other than a factory motherboard in that HP computer case - it may not have the proper riser/screw pattern for a regular ATX motherboard. You also need to be sure that it doesn't have a micro ATX board in it now, and that it utilizes a regular power supply (many HP desktops use proprietary power plugs on the motherboard, so that you can only use their power supply with their motherboard).

If you stick with the Intel board, don't pass on a used processor (I have used them many times in the past). You will have to source a heat sink/cooling fan, but the stock ones are usually very cheap and everywhere.

There are a ton of Core i5 processors (4th Gen) on eBay right now (there are hardly any 5th gen Core i5 processors, and they are overpriced). Just be sure to get one that is for socket 1150 (there are a couple that were made for some weird socket).

There are over 300 more listings, so you should be able to find something that works for you (some of them are dual core, so you may want to limit the search to 4 cores in the left column). The 3 that I linked are quad core (no hyperthreading). I have a rig that I built a few years ago that is using a Core 2 Quad processor, with 8 GB of RAM, an Nvidia GTX 480 video card,and a 480 GB SSD (SLC chips). It runs pretty dang good for what it is.

It's been ten years since I built my current desktop PC. So I might be a little bit out of the loop so to speak. You might already know this, but I've found these three sources to be fairly good for new and used parts, as well as some basic info....( I hope this helps)....BTW, I've always found it less expensive to build AMD based PC's.....

No real recommendations. If you have a line on the motherboard that you chose, just pick it up and use it. If you are wanting to buy one, I would read reviews from more than one site before purchasing. Newegg used to have barebones motherboard/CPU combos that were reasonably priced, but all of them now are over $325. I would just look for a good used socket 1150 motherboard, and pick up that 4th gen Core i5 processor. The RAM should be pretty cheap these days (especially if you are using DDR3 - don't know what the motherboard you posted uses). There are plenty of places to find stuff - Newegg even has used motherboards.

IMO I would not be building a new PC based off that MB or any 1150 socket. As mentioned it's old technology the new PC may likely be filled with used parts.

The biggest expense is the video card, and there is a lot of options there.

Another common mistake is people go overboard with RAM. 8 gb CAN be good enough, 16 GB is plenty, 32 gb is almost never needed.

If you want to go with something new, this motherboard/CPU combo will get you into a modern board, and a 6 core (12 core with hyperthreading) CPU. Add in the RAM and a video card, and you will be set back a little bit (you will most likely need a better power supply, too).

https://www.newegg.com/Product/Comb...mbo.3962525&Description=Motherboard CPU combo

https://www.newegg.com/g-skill-16gb-288-pin-ddr4-sdram/p/N82E16820232249

This video card has a low 300W recommended power supply (I would personally run at least a 500W in the computer):

https://www.newegg.com/msi-geforce-...g-x-4g/p/N82E16814137417?Item=N82E16814137417

I personally like the stuff from AMD (this video card will require at least a 450W power supply):

https://www.newegg.com/gigabyte-rad...oc-4gd/p/N82E16814932239?Item=N82E16814932239

The possibilities are endless. If you want a new machine that will perform quite well, then get the above motherboard/CPU combo, the 16GB of RAM, and pick one of the video cards. I would also do a fresh installation of your operating system (Windows will not stay activated once you boot the hard drive on a new motherboard/CPU) on an SSD (preferably an M.2 NVMe SSD - blazing fast speeds).

M.2 NVMe SSDs (either one will be very fast and they both have 5 year warranties):
