Hello Everyone,

I posted a lil while back, however ran into some financial things and can finally purchase! The parts list has changed due to time. I just want to make sure all these parts are compatible and if anyone has any more recommendations/upgrades to let me know! This is my first build also.

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: This week

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming (WOW, COD) - movies, hulu, web browsing, website building.

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS - I got windows 7 pro already. GPU - ordered a 5770 today!

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Newegg - I also live right next door to a microcenter

PARTS PREFERENCES: Intel I5. Already have a 5770.

OVERCLOCKING: Yes / Maybe - down the line - not enough cash right now

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1080, 1920x1200

I also ordered a Saphire 5770 from amazon today. So that will be the card of choice. I am having the largest concern with MOBO - Ram choice. I have no idea what to select. I want a decent MOBO with C/F SLI capabilities down the road at a reasonable price. I also heard with the Gigabyte board about a lot of ram not working? - Not sure about this. This is my first build and I really need all the expert advice I can get.

Thank you so much everyone!

As for the RAM, check this lower latency set out
OCZ Platinum 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...



Lower latency? Please explain? I have no idea what that means, as I stated i'm lost with the ram + Mobo.

Thanks!

See the RAM section of the guide in my sig for more info, but essentially, te timings refer to how many clock cycles it takes to access a block of data, lower numbers are better as it means you can access the data quicker, timings have more of a difference in performance than speed.

One last quick question. I heard OCZ ram not really working with the gigabytes boards.

So will this ram work?

Let me guess, you read newegg reviews? Ignore them, they are useless. Yes that G.Skill will work, but it will be slower due to higher latencies.
