Greetings. I'm completely new at the building front, so I've cruised the internet for some advice. This is what I decided I'll buy if everything fits, works and will run most new games smooth/not bad. I'd be happy if I got some professional help with the list.
I'm going to overclock a bit, but no SLI/crossfire, so I wondered if I should get PC10666 and a MSI 770-c45 instead (no crossfire option) to save some dough.
I kinda feel that the current mobo is overkill for my use, and also have concerns about MSI 770-c45 with 12800 ram; heard they don't work well together. That's the main reason for choosing this mobo, so if anyone know if I can use the black edition ram with 770-c45 I'll be very happy. I realise the 770-c45 is a budget board, and this is also why I want it. I saw some pretty nice clocks and benchmarks with it too.
Also, I won't be buying SSD atm. using win7.
