  2. Yes, that's the same mobo. Any dual channel DDR3 RAM up to 1333mhz should work.

    Edit: Just saw your edited post, would you like recommendations on that build, because there are a number of changes I would make, the first one being switching to a different socket?

    Also, use this format please:

    See what you think, and feel free to ask any questions you may have.
  5. so what ur saying is instead of doing and intel build just go with amd also im going to overclock so thats why i chose intel btw what price would that build u told me to go with be
  6. That's correct. The AMD actually overclocks well. It comes to about $900. Some more info would help as well:

  7. ok im going to save ur configuration and the one i chose to show it to a friend(computer crazed) also my sister (since i aint paying) and let them give suggestions to but i might keep the psu i chose cause future upgrades so i wanna stay ready lol
  8. I strongly recommend against your PSU, if you plan on crossfiring in the future you should go with one of these instead, it's far better than that Azza:
