Ans: overall to make it short, I only want to buy cpu, mobo and ram for now, rest I will be using from my old pc. I will upgrade my gpu soon.

This is what I have shortlisted
i5 6500 -15k
Gigabyte GA-H110M-S2 -5k
Kingston fury 8gb ddr4 stick 2133mhz - 3k

Guys advice me on my current choice and suggest if better is available. I dont need a fancy mobo, wont be using sli or crossfire, if possible suggest alt budget mobo with 4dimm slots. Try to kip it as cheap as possible, since I will be saving up for good gpu. Also I will buy another 8gb stick later.

Your suggested mobo has 2 gpu slots.. I wont be using 2 gpus, so dont wanna shell out extra bucks for 2 more dimm.

This mobo will support memort freq higher than 2133mhz?? Coz in specifications it says upto 2133.
