  1. Looks pretty nice, except you have no mobo listed ;)
  2. added the mobo, thanks for pointing that out, was late last night linking all the items.
  3. looks great but i would opt for the antec 300 illusion
  4. I'm a little concerned with my mobo's compatibility with the ram. There are so many gskill ram choices its a little overwhelming. The last thing I want is to have to return something by mail.
  5. Everything is compatible.

    RAM just has to be Dual Channel DDR3 for that board. Which you are planning on using.
  6. I read the mobo manufactures guide and they pointed me to these

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231193

    I also read the customer reviews on using this ram with my mobo and they seem positive.
  7. IF you can afford about $10 more ($119 MOBO - $20 combo +free shipping vs. $80 MOBO with $8 Shipping) I'd go with this MOBO\CPU combo instead ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.315742 ) - THe 770 chipset is getting pretty old and this combo has the better 790x chipset and also has a second PCI-e slot in case you later decide to add a 2nd 5770 when games start needing more.
