Performance wise, What is the main differences between Asrock z87 Exteme4 and MSI z87 G45?
Also does that RAM perform well? I've never heard of that memory.

the GTX 780 is much stronger than the GTX 770 and this system has got water cooling for overclocking and still a very good looking small build
