  1. depends on personal preference, of course there better as far as low end and high end and also options but a decent price board would perform well. I personally like asrock because I have had nothing but good things from them, but alot of people prefer an asus or gigibyte or even MSI , depends on if that board has best options for you. are you looking for great overclocking ?what is the purpose for the pc? Maybe a little more info i could recommend my opinion on motherboard.
  2. Like I said looking to run i5-2550k. Overclocking while still running SWTOR on max settings. Probably something along the lines of 16Gb 240Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 as well.
  3. well as far as as personal experience with oc i would recommend a extreme 3 or 4 gen 3. what video card did you have in mind?
  4. Nvidia gtx 570 or gtx 580
