Hello guys,
I am intending to build a gaming PC. I will play titles like COD: Ghosts, Tomb Raider, NFS Titles and games like skyrim and witcher 2 that will be released in future at 1080p in near max eyecandy. Now I dont think that buying an unlocked processor is necessary because most of the games dont require that much of processing power from the CPU side. Instead I will invest more on GPU (760 over R9-270x). Now I want advice on motherboard because I am confused about the PCI-E speeds. What motherboard should I get. I may SLI after an year or so.
My budget for a mobo is ₹12000 (India, exchange rate 1$=60₹ approx, reference webpage for mobo- http://www.flipkart.com/computers/computer-components/m...).
About RAM, I want to have 8gb corsair vengeance DDR3 1600. Should I have 1x8gb or 2x4GB and why.
I will have a 120 GBSSD and a 2 TB Seagate Barracuda(pre owned).
Will a good 650W power supply be enough for this?
And lastly, is a 27" monitor too big?

mobo Asus Z87-A - for sli and crossfire
2x4 GB is better , using dual channel memory access
ssd Samsung 840 EVO
650W psu is enough for R9 270X and GTX 760
GTX 760 is 14% faster than R9 270X

Means I have to look for a mobo with 2x pci-e 3x16 port? What happens if we put a second card in a lesser speed port such as x8 or something. I am asking it because ASrock service in India is scanty. Asus and MSI ones are good. Also, what do u recommend for a screen size?
This mobo looks good. I will go for it if I dont find an MSI or Asus

A lot of prcessors support 1 x16 and 2 x8 ,like i5 4440 . i.e. no need of 2 x16 .

As for the screen size - different persons - defferent preferences .19 inch minimum. My uncle has 27 Samsung and is very happy .What a man !

So will it hamper the performance if I choose a CPU that supports only 1 x16 slot while in SLI mode? I mean if the second card goes into the x8 slot, will it result in a slower performance?
