Hello,

Looking for some suggestions on my build

I currently have an i7-3770 (Non K version) that I picked up for 180$. I am planning on ordering:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

mobo and memory.

I am now left to buy the GPU; I am looking in the sub 200$ range; HD 7850 seems right up there at 175$.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I am also looking to potentially purchase a monitor. I currently have a Samsung 2232BW Plus (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...), so I am unsure if I should upgrade or not. I would be looking at 22-24" screens; probably something like this:http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-S24C370HL-23-6-Inch-LED-L...


Any advice is much appreciated

Regards,

1. The mobo you have picked out is really for overclockers (your cpu can't be overclocked)
2. No need for 2400mhz ram, go with 1600mhz g.skill sniper ram for cheaper
3. Gpu is probably the best your going to get in you budget range
4. I would suggest getting this monitor (one of the best 1080p displays available for the price) - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Any mobo recommendations? Google only shows up that mobo recommended for the -k version

You can still use the board you have picked out (just no ocing with your cpu). Don't get me wrong, it's a great board, however there are cheaper boards for people who don't OC.

I understand that, any cheaper recommendations? I am still only learning what all the different specifications mean and am somewhat lost trying to figure out what to look for.
