Is the asus sabertooth z77 lga 1155 intel z77, compatible with a intel core i5-3570k?
Is that possible do they work together, will that motherboard get the most out of that processor, does that motherboard have room for 2 HDD and possibly a SSD down the track (if not what motherboard do you recommend?)
ya! it is compatible
Sure it can support 2 HDDS & one SSD

Ok you seem like you know your stuff, and im fairly hopeless just want to build a fairly decent computer for a good price. what i have so far is i want a Obsidian 650d case, a Intel Core i5-3570K cpu, and have now decided on the Gigabyte GA-Z77M-D3H, i want to have water cooling on it just to be safe and a Nvidia GTX 650 Ti Boost Graphics card, is this possible in this case and how many watt power supply do you recommend? I know there are other main components i need for this such as storage memory and optical drive but i think i can figure that bit out.
Ok thanks... I was going to get two seperate HDD's a 3TB one and a 1TB one and im not 100% sure what overclocking is but i thought having the water cooling system could be handy as i may be uploading a video rendering another and recording me playing another game all at the same time so i figured that could be pretty strenuous and watercooling would probably be the best option.
