  1. If this build is for gaming, i'd put what extra you have into your video card, the one you've picked, while not bad, isn't going to play newer games past medium or maybe high settings. If this is just a general use PC (little to light gaming) then it's just about perfect how it is. If you dont' game, you can drop the graphics to a 7750 happily and put the rest elsewhere.
  2. Certainly no expert here...

    If your processor is locked, is there any reason to have a Z77 board? Isn't that of use to overclockers? Is there a cheaper, just as good, alternative?
  3. I play star trek online, guild wars, fallout, elder scrolls. I am not interested in overclocking, just a good gaming rig. What is a better gpu and motherboard for my build?
