i don't want to buy ATI graphic cards since they have bad directx 11 support and are easily beaten by Nvidia.
also please tell me whether the RAM i have chosen is okay for gaming?

You chose a P55 motherboard which has an 1156 socket, but an i7 930 CPU which needs a 1366 socket. They wont work together.

You didnt give specs for the kingston RAM. RAM is either compatible with the motherboard or not, there is no such thing as good gaming RAM. For games you only need 4GB. With an AM3 or 1156 motherboard you get 2x2GB, for a 1366 motherboard you get 3x2GB.

Especially if you do multi-player gaming, I would get a cheap headset with microphone so you can use in-game voice, ventrilo, etc for team gaming. They are also good when playing late at night and speaker noise would disturb others.


Here is a quote from jonnyguru's review of that Coolermaster GX 750 Power supply.
Coolermaster has a decent 600 watt unit here. The unit does pretty well for stability and efficiency, doesn't get very loud, and... what? It's a 750 watt unit?

Facepalm.

Past Coolermaster units have done pretty well here in the lab, and I'm puzzled that this one has done so poorly. said:

It failed 80+ certification at high loads yet got certified 80+ bronze somehow.
